Mourning processions on the occasion of Imam Hussein (AS) martyrdom anniversary were held in the Canadian cities of Vancouver and Toronto.

They were attended by the followers and devotees of Ahl-ul-Bayt (AS).

Shia Muslims, and others in different parts of the world, hold ceremonies every year in the month of Muharram to mourn the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein (AS) and his companions.

The third Shia Imam (AS) and a small group of his followers and family members were martyred by the tyrant of his time - Yazid Bin Moaweya, in the battle of Karbala on the tenth day of Muharram (known as Ashura) in the year 680 AD.
