NAJAF, IRAQ - November 21: A young Shiite boy hits himself with chains as a way of showing his devotion outside the Imam Ali Shrine November 21, 2003 in Najaf, Iraq. With the fall of Saddam Hussein’s regime the Shiites have emerged from decades of repression to seize the reins of power in Iraq. Making up over sixty percent of Iraq’s population the Shiites will most likely determine the future course of one of the Middle East’s most important countries. (Photo by Matt Moyer)
