Around 5,000 earthquake victims have already been buried in mass graves in Turkey's Marash city. And the work of digging more graves with excavators is on as bodies keep reaching the mass-grave site on Monday.
A police official on the ground said Marash, a Turkish city of about 5 lakh people, might need to bury 10,000 earthquake victims. Marash is officially known as Kahramanmaras.
With cemeteries in Marash city running out of space, a new area had been allotted for burials. But with the earmarked location filling up fast, the area for the mass-burial site is being expanded.
