For five years, the world has been witness to the horrors of Syria's Civil War.
More than 250,000 people have been killed. More than 11 million have lost their homes.
But the greatest cultural loss was in the ancient city of Palmyra, a world heritage site.
This week, the Assad dictatorship retook Palmyra from ISIS -- the bad guys taking it back from the worse guys, if you will.
CBS News' Elizabeth Palmer reached Palmyra today, the first journalist for a U.S. network to enter the city.
