Iraqi Army Christian TownDownload
Licensed to London News Pictures. 23/10/2016. A statue of the Virgin Mary, with its head removed by Islamic State militants, is seen on a pile of rubble after being placed there by Iraqi soldiers in the town of Bartella, Iraq.
Bartella, a mainly Christian town with a population of around 30,000 people before being taken by the Islamic State in August 2014, was captured two days ago by the Iraqi Army's Counter Terrorism force as part of the ongoing offensive to retake Mosul. Although ISIS militants were pushed back a large amount of improvised explosive devices are still being found in the town's buildings. Photo credit: Matt Cetti-Roberts/LNP
