Murder and mayhem in Superdome

Leroy Fouchea, 42, waited in the sweltering heat for an hour to get his ration - his first proper food since Monday - and immediately handed it over to a sickly friend.

He then offered to show reporters the dead bodies of a man in a wheelchair, a young man who he said he dragged inside just hours earlier, and the limp forms of two infants, one just four months old, the other six months old.


A National Guardsman refused entry.

'It doesn't need to be seen, it's a make-shift morgue in there,' he told a Reuters photographer. 'We're not letting anyone in there anymore. If you want to take pictures of dead bodies, go to Iraq.'
