Senegalese Muslim volunteers bury unidentified dead

Volunteers of the Jamiyatou Rahmati Wal Ihsani (JRWI) cover the 28 unidentified corpses laid out at a mosque ahead of a prayer in Dakar, Senegal, on March 28, 2021.

  • For the dead to be buried in a mass grave without Islamic rites would be considered an abomination in a country which is 90-percent Muslim.

Neither Mohamed Diop nor his fellow mourners knew any of the people they were burying.
