Lots of misinformation about what happened today at the Marble Arch Arbaeen Match, so I thought a thread may be useful: The procession scheduled for Marble Arch was the annual #Arbaeen March organised by local Shia communities to commemorate the 40th day after the martyrdom anniversary of Husayn (ع), the grandson of Muhammad (ص).
