World - Palmyra`s ancient ruins unharmed for now: Syria antiquities chief

Syria`s antiquities chief said on Tuesday the historic city of Palmyra had been unharmed since ultra-radical Islamic State insurgents seized it from state control last week.

Palmyra, also known as Tadmur, is home to a UNESCO World Heritage site.

World - Poorest countries neglected by foreign aid donors: report
