Screen Shot 2019 01 01 at 23.20.39

A group of funeral directors in South Africa say they will sue a self-styled prophet who claims to have resurrected a dead man.

A viral video of Pastor Alph Lukau shows him shouting "rise up" to a man lying down in a coffin who then jerks upright to cheers from worshippers. The funeral companies say they were manipulated into being involved.

The spectacle, seen outside Pastor Lukau's church near Johannesburg, has been ridiculed and condemned by many.
