    Cairo's main mortuary has been overwhelmed with bodies as the number of deaths from Wednesday's violence continues to rise.

    The cause of each death must be recorded before a burial permit can be issued, but authorities at the morgue are struggling to cope.

    Hundreds of people have been killed since the interim government ordered the clearing of the two protest camps supporting deposed president Mohamed Morsi.

    Al Jazeera's Bernard Smith reports from Cairo.
