    When the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, known as ISIS) captured the ancient city of Palmyra in 2015, it partly destroyed one of Syria's most precious archaeological treasures.

    But now a new exhibition in Germany is giving visitors an interactive view of what the site looked like before the armed group took over.
