The brutal details of the clean-up operation

SRI LANKA (Ekstra Bladet): It is far from only the rich and famous in Colombo's five-star luxury hotels, that provides for the well-planned terrorist attacks on Sunday killed and wounded hundreds.

Also the poor local licks wounds after the historic and bloody attacks.

For while 39 foreigners at the time of writing is reported killed, the number of local sri lankans around 250 dead.

En Ekstra Bladet on Monday visited the Department of Forensics and Toxicology in the capital city of Colombo, there was continued pressure to identify the victims.

Broken families queued up at the makeshift decorated office in the corner of the morgue.

- People come here with pictures and names in the hope that their loved ones are among the unidentified, explains a doctor in the green coat behind the desk.

In the aftermath of the attack, several people disappeared in the chaos. Tourists at the affected hotels have left the country in haste, while the other victims have been brought to the hospital, where several are still in critical condition and receiving treatment.

Also, there are the fatalities, which continued on Monday afternoon in an uncomfortable hurry brought to the morgue.

Behind in the cars, the white body bags, after being emptied, returned and used again. Most of the bags are smeared in blood, while a sickening sødligduft hangs after the cars when they pass.

Inside the morgue displayed the dead rather than the broken families. But far from all of the inquest ends with the body being identified.

- Then we package them together again, and trying to find another forward, say a tired employee from the police's specialised unit in a pause to Ekstra Bladet.

He does not want his name forward.

- It is hard. I've done it too many times, he says, while a woman with a blank look in the eyes comes out on the street.

In one hand she has a white piece of paper with a signature. In the other she has a small bag with the jewelry.

Once a victim has been identified.
