The $3,000 corpse

Iran’s medical students are running out of corpses on which to learn their stuff.

Which means there is now a thriving black market in flogging the dead to them.

According to state-run media, Iranian medical colleges are now paying up to $3,000 per corpse in the black market. Apparently around 100 unclaimed corpses have been collected from the back streets of Tehran. One local doctor reports that her college had bought three bodies recently: one of which belonged to a man who was executed in prison and wasn’t claimed by relatives; the second body was of a homeless person; the third body was unidentified.
