Heartbreaking vandalism…

It actually makes me cry to see these amazing and ancient works of art ruined in seconds by horrible ISIS thugs. The ancient ruins of the Iraqi Assyrian city of Nimrud were destroyed last month but a video showing exactly how they did it has just been released by ISIS. I wrote essays about this incredible UNESCO heritage site at university. It defies belief that they no longer exist.
