Mosul post-ISIL: Iraq seeks to rebuild its 'destroyed' heritage

Iraqi archaeologists say their government has done little to assess the damage and destruction caused by the Islamic State of Iraq in the Levant.

    Rebuilding efforts in Iraq have been slow since the defeat of the Islamic State of Iraq in the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) last year.

    But it is not just about reconstructing schools and homes, archaeologists say Iraq's very heritage is at stake.
