Hope for healing in Karachi

Yasir, a 7-year-old disabled boy, lies buried in sand up to his neck during a partial solar eclipse at Karachi's Clifton beach. People, mostly children, with disabilities were buried chest-deep during the partial solar eclipse on Tuesday as part of a traditional superstition that it would bring healing to their bodies.
