Iraqi Pilgrims
Disaster kills more than 950 people on a Baghdad bridge

A deadly stampede Wednesday resulted in the greatest one-day loss of life in Iraq since the war began in March 2003.

Due to rumors of a suicide bomber, panic spread among hundreds of Shiite pilgrims as they were crossing a bridge over the Tigris River in Baghdad. The resulting stampede killed more than 950 people--many of whom were women and children--and injured hundreds of others.

The pilgrims were on their way to a shrine to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Moussa al-Khadhem, one of Shiite Islam's holiest figures.

Add your thoughts and prayers for those affected by this disaster.
