“Blood on My Hands”: Nabatiyeh, Lebanon. Shi’ia holy event of Ashura. Few cities mourn the loss of Hassan and Houssein through more demonstrative and bloody rituals. One of these rituals include cutting a wound into their scalp using a machete. Few families also involve their children at a young age, passing on these traditions to the following generation. Here, an adult is cleaning blood off this young boy's hands.
