Iraq | Reconstruction of ruined Mosul mosque to begin next year: UNESCO

PARIS (AP) — The United Nations' cultural agency UNESCO announced Wednesday that a landmark reconstruction of Iraq's al-Nouri mosque in Mosul, which was blown up by the Islamic State group in 2017, will start at the beginning of next year.


The timeline of the restoration plan of the 12th-century monument, famed for its leaning minaret, was hammered out during a meeting in Paris between UNESCO Director General Audrey Azoulay and several Iraqi officials, including Iraqi Culture Minister Abdulamir al-Dafar Hamdani, and Mosul's regional governor, Mansour al-Mareed.
