Iraqi Christians race to save artefacts

Thousands of Christianity’s oldest artefacts and manuscripts under threat from ISIL’s advance.

Christians in Iraq are racing to save some of their religion’s oldest and most sacred artefacts. Thousands of manuscripts were stolen when fighters belonging to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group stormed Mosul last year.
