APTOPIX IRAQ CEMETERY

Two people walk past tombs at the Wadi al-Salaam cemetery in the Shiite holy city of Najaf, 160 kilometers (100 miles) south of Baghdad, Iraq, Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2007. Wadi al-Salaam, or the Valley of Peace, is one of the largest cemeteries in the world, containing millions of graves. All Shiite believers in Iraq request that they be buried in Wadi al-Salaam, because of its proximity to the Shrine of Imam Ali, where Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib, the first Shiite Imam, was buried.
