Bodies of Bronx fire victims taken to Islamic funeral home

Those killed in the horrific Bronx fire were taken to an Islamic funeral home on Friday ahead of a mass funeral scheduled for this weekend.

At least 14 of the 17 victims — many of whom were Muslim immigrants — were wheeled into the Paak funeral home in Queens to be cleansed and wrapped according to Islamic tradition.

Covered by white sheets, the stretchers carrying the bodies were moved one-by-one into an elevator inside the Paak Funeral Home and then lowered to the basement level.
