IRAQI MUSEUM REOPENS IN BAGHDAD

Twelve years after it was closed, many of the looted antiquities have now been recovered and restored. In the meantime the world heritage body Unesco has called for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to “discuss” how to protect Iraq’s museums and cultural heritage. Many antiquities and archeological sites have survived 7000 years. Now ISIS has achieved great victories against old stones in Mosul Museum and Nimrud!
No cheers from me.
