Broken Palmyra

Syria’s director general of antiquities sent me these photographs of broken statues at Palmyra, taken on his mobile phone after the site’s recapture from ISIS.

Here is the link to my story on our interview at the Art Newspaper.  It leads off on anti-smuggling seizures but includes an update on the situation at Palmyra.   He was a  keynote speaker at the Edinburgh International Culture Summit.
