Residents climb into their houses atop gravestones inside a cemetery in Manila

Residents climb into their houses atop gravestones inside a cemetery in Manila October 21, 2008. Many poor urban dwellers make their homes in public cemeteries, converting abandoned tombs and mausoleums into houses. The local government plan to move out the hundreds of people who live in the cemeteries around the city before the upcoming All Souls' Day, a day of remembrance for the dead when Catholics visit the graves of their relatives.
