Hundreds of thousands of mourners follow the September 2, 2003 funeral procession for assasinated Iraqi Shiite cleric Mohammed Baqir al-Hakim through the streets of Najaf, Iraq. Al-Hakim, one of Iraq's most revered Shiite clerics, was killed along with more than 100 others in a massive car bombing outside the Imam Ali Shrine in Najaf August 29, 2003, and was finally laid to rest in his birthplace after a three day procession through Baghdad, Karbala, Hilla, Kufa, and Najaf.
