Islamic State fighters smash historic statues in Iraq — Nineveh, on the site of modern day Mosul, was the capital of the Assyrian empire that lasted nineteen centuries from 2500 to 605 BC. But, according to archaeologists, most if not all the statues in the Mosul museum are replicas not originals. The reason they crumble so easily is that they're made of plaster.

The lights strobe as Psy's 2012 hit blasts out and a young woman with tattooed arms and a ripped T-shirt roars out the lyrics.

Living with war in Aleppo - video — Syria's second city has seen some of the fiercest fighting of the civil war, but some people living there just want to forget the carnage, whatever way they can.

Lindsey Hilsum: It is sobering to see how war has taken hold in Ukraine — I have just returned from my fourth visit to Ukraine this year. In February, I started off in Lviv, in the far west, and ended up in Crimea in the south - which, by the time I left, had been annexed by Russia. History moves fast these days.
