Dozens of remains of earthquake victims were still awaiting identification in a makeshift morgue in Turkey, days after the massive earthquake devastated large swathes of the country.

More than 100 bodies, in body bags or covered in blankets, were laid out in the yard and in refrigerated trucks at Antakya State Hospital, though more remains have arrived.

Turkey’s disaster management agency said victims who cannot be identified would be buried within five days, in line with Islamic funeral rites which require burials to take place as quickly as possible.

The Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) said the unidentified victims would be buried after undergoing DNA testing, fingerprinting and being photographed for future identification.
