A morgue in Ivory Coast no longer has place for the dead. So the more than 50 bodies that were delivered in the past five days are being stacked on the floor.
An Associated Press reporter saw the badly decomposed corpses from the conflict in the suburb of Abobo, laying head-to-toe on tiles slippery with blood.
Citizens began collecting the dead on Tuesday and a hearse brought in another five corpses as a reporter stood nearby on Wednesday.
The standoff between the two men claiming to be president of Ivory Coast already has claimed the lives of hundreds.
The conflict reached a new level last week when the army began using war-like weapons, including mortars and rocket-propelled grenades.
