Watch .. people take pictures with Maradonas body … and widespread anger hits Argentina


A massive wave of anger erupted in Argentina after several people took pictures with the body of soccer legend Diego Armando Maradona, before burying him to his final resting place.

The British newspaper “Daily Mail” reported that some workers at the funeral home in Buenos Aires took a picture with the coffin in which Maradonas body lay, and posted the pictures on his account on the social networking site “Twitter”.

The newspaper quoted Matthias Morla, Maradonas private lawyer, as saying that this matter is a moral scandal, adding: “I decided to file a lawsuit because some people took a picture with Diego while he was in his coffin, and I will personally take care of them, and everyone is responsible for this dangerous behavior.”

The lawyer said that the person who took the photo, called Diego Molina, was responsible for preparing the coffin of the late legend, noting that the three people who appeared in the photos were expelled from the funeral home.

The “Daily Mail” indicated that Molina received death threats from Maradona fans, after the spread of pictures of him standing next to the coffin after the autopsy of Maradona.

Maradona died at the age of 60, the day before Wednesday, at his home in Tigre, north of Buenos Aires, after suffering a heart attack.

In the wake of this, the Argentine presidency declared the country mourning for 3 days. There will also be a minute of silence in the Champions League and Europa League stadiums on Wednesday and Thursday.

The former soccer player was suffering from various health problems. A few weeks ago, he underwent surgery because of a blood pool in his brain.
