Militants threaten ancient sites in Iraq, Syria
BAGDHAD, Sep 19 (Agencies): For more than 5,000 years, numerous civilisations have left their mark on upper Mesopotamia from Assyrians and Akkadians to Babylonians and Romans. Their ancient, buried cities, palaces and temples packed with monumental art are scattered across what is now northern Iraq and eastern Syria. Now much of that archaeological wealth is under the control of extremists from the Islamic State group. The militants have demolished some artifacts in their zealotry to uproot what they see as heresy, but they are also profiting from it, hacking relics off palace walls or digging them out to sell on the international black market. Antiquities officials in Iraq and Syria warn of a disaster as the region's history is erased. In Iraq, black market dealers are coming into area...

Murdered aid worker's brother says Islam 'not to blame'
LONDON, Sep 15 (Agencies): The brother of British hostage David Haines murdered by Islamist militants today issued a tearful video statement about growing religious radicalisation in which he quoted a verse from the Koran. "We are seeing more and more radicalisation in every walk of life. It is not a race, religion or political issue, it is a human issue," Mike Haines told British media. His voice breaking with emotion, Haines read out a passage from the Koran saying: "Since good and evil cannot be equal, repel thou evil with something that is better." He added: "The Muslim faith is not to blame for ISIL, nor is it the fault of people of Middle Eastern descent." Aid worker Haines was kidnapped in Syria in March 2013. His murder was revealed in a video released late yesterday by milita...
