The day in photos, April 15, 2010

Shiites gather at the holy shrine of Imam Ali in this Sept. 10, 2009, file photo to mark the last days of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in Najaf, Iraq, 100 miles south of Baghdad. Iraqi and U.S. security officials say Iraqi forces have disrupted an al-Qaida plot to hijack airliners and fly them into Shiite holy shrines. They say the plan was to carry out a 9/11-style attack aimed at re-igniting sectarian violence in Iraq.
