Nasrallah Makes Public Appearance for ‘Ashura

Hizbullah leader Hasan Nasrallah has generally been seen only on television, not in public, since the war with Israel in 2006. He has therefore surprised his followers by making an unexpected appearance for ‘Ashura today. He appeared in the Dahiya, Beirut's sprawling and heavily Shi‘ite southern suburb.

Al Jazeera has a gallery of photos of the event here.
