The Tragic and Complete Destruction of Art In Mosul

On February 26, 2015, a group of Islamic state thugs destroyed a collection of priceless statues in Iraq dating back thousands of years. It was an extremely violent destruction, as well, as the vandals used a multitude of power tools and blunt instruments, like sledge hammers, to smash the ancient works in a museum in Mosul, Iraq.
