The deceased, Violette Jean, lies in a coffin, with stones placed in her hands and under her foot, in Limbe, Haiti, March 20, 2021. Traditions from the Afro-Caribbean religion Voodoo are often mixed with Christian ones. Voodoo undertakers, called croque-mort?('dead-biter' in French), prescribe what families need to place in the coffins in order to assure a safe journey and ensure the dead are not turned into zombies. Stones are placed in hands and under feet to help combat any evil spirits that may wish harm. REUTERS/Valerie Baeriswyl SEARCH "HAITI FUNERALS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES
