chattels: MAINZ, Germany – Germany said it is bolstering its military presence in Iraq’s Kurdistan Region and deploy jets in the fight against ISIS, following a French plea to EU allies after the deadly bombings in Paris. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and ministers decided on extending the German military mission in the war against the Islamic State.
“Not only will we bolster our training mission in northern Iraq but we will, among other things, make a contribution to the fight against ISIS terror with Tornado reconnaissance jets,” Henning Otte, defense expert for Angela Merkel’s CDU party, said on Thursday. “Germany will be a more active contributor than it has been until now,” he added.

They are making their way to the city of Karbala, 62 miles south-west of Baghdad, for the holy day of Arbaeen on 12 December - a journey that has previously been the target of numerous terrorist attacks.
Arbaeen marks the end of a 40-day mourning period following Ashura, the religious ritual that commemorates the death of the Prophet Mohammad's grandson Imam Hussein in 680.
Shia Muslims revere him as their third imam and mourn his defeat at the battle of Karbala, when he and his companions were killed and beheaded by Caliph Yazid’s army.
The city holds the Imam Hussein Shrine, which was the destination of an estimated 20 million people from 40 countries in 2013.
