Mosul University Library torched by the Islamic State

 

2/1/2017 - From Reuters journalist Emily Wither's facebook page:  "When Islamic State first arrived at Mosul University they sold the rare ancient manuscripts and burned the philosophy books. As the Iraqi army closed in they torched the entire library. Thousands of books reduced to ashes. Such senseless devastation. The community are now appealing for books to rebuild their libraries."
