Abdallah Azzam’s grave

Since I am
on the topic of cemeteries, I figured I might post this picture that
supposedly shows Abdallah Azzam’s grave at the Babi martyr cemetery outside Peshawar shortly after his burial in late 1989. 

The picture is a screenshot from a video that depics the immediate aftermath of Azzam’s assassination as well as the whole burial. Azzam was assassinated by a roadside bomb in Peshawar in the morning of 24 November 1989, and he was buried the same evening. The martyr cemetery at Babi is probably the most famous of all jihadi cemeteries, and many Arab Afghans killed in the 1980s and 1990s rest there.
