Inside Palmyra after recapture from IS
Pictures have emerged revealing the extent of the damage caused by Islamic State militants during their occupation of the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra, a Unesco World Heritage site.
The Roman-era ruins were recaptured by Syrian government forces last week after 10 months under the jihadist group's control.
Syrian antiquities officials will hold a meeting with Unesco chiefs in Paris soon to discuss a strategy for the restoring parts of the site destroyed by the militants, including the 2,000-year-old temples of Bel and Baalshamin, a triumphal arch and several funerary towers.
