Authorities in Sudan have ordered a morgue in the capital Khartoum, to shut down because bodies there are starting to decompose in the heat because of frequent power cuts.

The facility is said to hold nearly 1,000 unidentified corpses.

A health ministry official Hisham Zain al-Abidin said that, the morgue was so overwhelmed that many bodies were left on the floors and rodents were scavenging on them.

Rights activists have expressed concern that its closure may cover-up the truth of how many were killed during protests against govenrment.
