Iraqi Army Christian TownDownload
Licensed to London News Pictures. 23/10/2016. An improvised explosive device, which was set by Islamic State militants to destroy the Mart Shmony Church in Bartella, Iraq, is seen after being rendered safe by Iraqi Army engineers.
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
