Hundreds of corpses of Daesh (ISIS) fighters have lain stored for the past year in a row of refrigerated containers in the Libyan city of Misrata awaiting a final decision on their fate.Around 700 bodies have been housed at the improvised morgue ever since Daesh militants were expelled in Dec. 2016 from the coastal city of Sirte that had been their bastion in Libya.Due to the lack of resources, several hundred other Daesh corpses have been abandoned under the rubble in Sirte or in makeshift cemeteries dug by the militants.Out of the seven refrigerated containers in Misrata, three have broken down.
