Seems that we have lost a Notable Minaret from our Connection today:

I wonder what the WHC will do about Aleppo especially. Should be labelled In Danger.

So tragic. It's been only a few years since I walked around that beautiful mosque. The fighting doesn't seem to stop and the world doesn't do a thing about it. Sad to see that there's no help when a country doesn't have a lot of oil...

Indeed, a trajedy with no forseeable end. The media has lost interest long ago after the Assad regime didn't fall as many predicted. Nevertheless, this forum is probably not the best place for a political discussion.

That video is the most horrible thing I've seen since the Bamiyan Buddhas were bombed.

That is bitterly depressing.

I'm guessing that wasn't the colonnade at Palmyra at the start and 1:16 of the video as I assume that would be bigger news. Even if not Palmyra it is rather depressing viewing.

Not wanting to get political, but it was with a dejected sigh that I saw the split of nations on the move to place all 6 sites on the endangered list. France on one side Russia on the other, very familiar to those following 'diplomacy' around Syria at the moment.
