Unesco chief slams destruction of Iraq heritage

Baghdad - Unesco chief Irina Bokova on Sunday slammed the "barbaric" destruction of Iraq's cultural heritage, as jihadists from the Islamic State group destroy age-old sites in areas they control.

Iraq has "thousands of temples, of buildings, of archaeological sites, of objects, that represent a treasure for [all] humanity," Bokova said during a visit to Baghdad.
