Baghdad: One Dead an Hour

From Zaman Online (1st Turkish Paper on the Internet), Not Enough Caskets for the Iraqi Dead:
The price of a coffin varies from between $35 and $50 in Bagdat (Baghdad), in a city where one person dies every hour. Caskets have become a major necessity of the country due to the increasing number of deaths. Although around 10 or 15 caskets are constructed per day, they are still not able to supply enough caskets to keep up with demands, say coffin makers.
