Villagers angered by attempt to sell church and cemetery containing 50 graves

People in the north Bohemian village of Roudníky have been angered by an advertisement from a real estate agency offering for sale the local church, complete with a mortuary and a cemetery containing around 50 graves, the website reported. The parish went bankrupt two years ago after an investment in a sawmill proved unsuccessful. One man told that his great-grandparents, parents and parents-in-law were buried there; he said he could understand the sale of the church, but not the graveyard.
