AhlulBayt News Agency - Drone footage shows the enormity of what is considered to be the world's biggest cemetery in Najaf, Iraq.

The Wadi al-Salam Islamic cemetery contains more than 5 million graves, spanning 602 hectares.

The cemetery is located near the shrine of Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib, the first Shia Imam. Thus, many Shiites in Iraq request that they be buried in this cemetery. As a result of improved transportation methods, Shi'ites from across the globe are (or seek to be) buried in the cemetery.
