DAMASCUS: A satellite image on Monday shows that the main building of the ancient Temple of Bel in the Syrian city of Palmyra has been destroyed, a United Nations agency said. The image was taken a day after a massive explosion was set off near the 2,000-year-old temple in the city occupied by Islamic State militants. Earlier, Maamoun Abdulkarim, the head of the Antiquities and Museums Department in Damascus, said there was conflicting information about the fate of the temple, one of the most prominent structures in a sprawling Roman-era complex, because eyewitnesses were unable to approach the site. But Einar Bjorgo, manager of...

A bill granting autonomy to Ukraine's restive eastern regions cleared its first parliamentary hurdle on Monday but sparked a violent right-wing protest that left a national guardsman dead and more than 120 people injured. The recently conscripted guardsman was killed when a grenade was thrown into a cordon of police and special forces guarding the Supreme Council in central Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, where lawmakers had just held a rowdy debate over the proposed decentralisation of government. The clashes outside parliament sent 122 people to the hospital, mostly police and guardsman, the Ukraine Interior Ministry said in a statement. Under a...

Almost every seabird – from the gregarious kittiwake to the wandering albatross – will have eaten some kind of plastic object by the middle of this century, a systematic survey of marine pollution has found. So much plastic waste is ending up in the oceans that 99 per cent of seabird species and 95 per cent of individuals within each species will end up swallowing some of it by 2050, scientists said. The researchers have calculated that nine out of ten species of seabird are already having plastic rubbish lodged in their stomachs, causing untold damage to their chances of reproducing successfully.
