Procession at Marble Arch
Procession at Marble Arch
The stretch of Edgware Road between Marble Arch and Marylebone Road is a centre for London's Arab community. This is a procession held to mark the martyrdom of Hussain, grandson of the Prophet Muhammad. The men are beating themselves with chain whips. I was given a pamphlet explaining what this was all about. To find out more, follow the link LinkExternal link Here are 2 links to videos I uploaded to Google Video, you'll need sound.
