Gravediggers at Massive Cemetery in Iraq Share Chilling Ghost Stories

Workers at an enormous cemetery in Iraq claim that the site is home to countless ghosts that have been known to attack gravediggers and leave them deeply unnerved by the experience. Located in the city of Najaf and measuring a jaw-dropping 2.3 square miles, Wadi-us-Salaam or the Valley of Peace is the world's largest cemetery. The sprawling graveyard is believed to be the final resting place for millions of individuals who have perished in the region over the last 1,400 years.

Considering the sheer number of people buried at the cemetery and its rich history, it's understandable why one might suspect that the location could be haunted and if the gravediggers working at the site are to be believed, it would appear that is the case. In a fascinating piece from Al Jazeera, several men employed at the cemetery shared chilling accounts of their own personal encounters with spirits and possible supernatural entities during their time on the job.
