Members of the family of the deceased, Joyce Tembo, wait in line at the mortuary in Lusaka, Zambia, to pick up her body after it had been prepared for burial by family members. She passed away on Saturday and is being buried on Tuesday, one of the busiest days of the week for funerals in Lusaka. A sign on the wall warns of misidentification, a problem when so many bodies are being prepared and picked up on one day.
