Not even a proper grave

The two Turkish nurses, whose bodies were found under the rubble of a collapsed hotel in Saudi Arabia after being reported missing for three days, will not have a grave, but are to be buried in Mecca instead. The bodies of Sengul Uzuner and Handan Kurtulus were rescued from under the rubble of the collapsed hotel, and identified by friends of the two. On hearing this news, the families of the nurses requested that the bodies be brought back to Turkey.
