Palmyra in Ruins

Published: Updated:

The hardline Islamic State group has destroyed part of an ancient temple in Syria's Palmyra city.

It is the second temple Islamic State has targeted in Palmyra this month. The group detonated explosives in the ancient Baal Shamin temple on Aug. 25, an act that cultural agency UNESCO has called a war crime aimed at wiping out a symbol of Syria's diverse cultural heritage.
