Satellite images have confirmed that Islamic State (Isis) has largely destroyed another ancient temple in the Syrian city of Palmyra, the United Nations said on Monday.
A powerful blast in the ruins of the ancient city on Sunday was believed to have been the result of Isis targeting the Temple of Bel, although the extent of the damage at the Roman-era structure was not immediately clear.
However, the UN training and research agency (Unitar) says that its satellite programme put to rest any doubts that the structure had been destroyed in the blast.
