Inside Hong Kong’s ‘coffin homes’ amid housing crisis - in pictures

Some 200,000 of Hong Kong’s 7.3 million residents live in “subdivided units”. That is up 18 per cent from four years ago and includes 35,500 children 15 and under, government figures show.

The figure does not include many thousands more living in other inadequate housing such as rooftop shacks, metal cages resembling rabbit hutches and “coffin homes” made of stacked wooden bunks.
