Most deceased Muslims are repatriated to their home countries

October 25th, 2010

Representatives of the Muslim community in Lorca ask the town council to lend a place in the public cemetery for the burial of Muslims. As there is no Muslim cemetery in the city, the deceased are transported to the close-by region of Valencia or repatriated to their home countries to be buried. This repatriation can cost the families up to 3.000 euros.
