In desperation, female relatives of jail fire victims storm morgue in Honduras


 

Hundreds of relatives of the over 350 prisoners who died in a horrible jail fire in Honduras last week stormed a morgue to recover their lost ones’ remains on Monday. A horde of mostly women, who say they “just can’t take it anymore,” entered the morgue in Tegucigalpa and opened at least six body bags, reported the BBC and The Guardian. The latter states that so far only 16 of the 359 dead bodies have been properly identified and given to the victims’ relatives. Of all the fatal victims in the overcrowded jail, less than half had been convicted of a crime.
