A video of a muddy cemetery with open and empty graves has been posted on a Nigeria-based Facebook page.
The video has been viewed more than 50,000 times. But what does it really show? We checked.
Ruined cemetery in Konibodom, Tajikistan
But the article does not have a video or photo of the cemetery. It only shows a photo of a man looking at debris outside a house.
A search for the Cyrillic video title on the Russia-based Yandex search engine brought up an article published on 3 June 2019 with a clear picture of the collapsed graves and a video shot at the cemetery.
The video’s caption puts the location of the ruined cemetery in Konibodom (also Kanibadam), a city in the central Asian country of Tajikistan. A translation of the article’s headline reads: “Disaster raged in Tajikistan: one person died, hundreds of houses and a cemetery were damaged.”
The video was shot in Tajikistan, not Thailand, and shows the aftermath of a mudslide, not the rapture.
