Spring festival, Newroz

A sheikh leader of Kosovo, “C,” leads a ceremony, marking spring festival, Newroz, in a prayer room in Gjakova town on late Friday, March 21, 2014. The dervishes, adepts of Sufism, a mystical form of Islam that preaches tolerance and a search for understanding, live in a community which carries on centuries-old mystical practices, such as self-piercing with needles and knives as a way to earn salvation and find the path to God.(AP Photo/Visar Kryeziu)
