Islamic State seizes Syria’s ancient Palmyra
Hundreds of Palmyra’s statues have been moved to safety but large monuments from the ancient parts of the city could not be moved.
“This is the entire world’s battle,” said Syria’s head of antiquities Maamoun Abdul Karim. He called on the US-led military coalition against IS to prevent the group destroying the ancient site.
The story itself notes that before “callous” Abbott got elected, hundreds of boat people died at sea trying to get to Australia.

Italian police say they have arrested a Moroccan suspected of taking part in the March attack on the Bardo National Museum in Tunis in which 21 tourists, including an Australian, were killed.
Abdel Majid Touil, 22, was arrested on an international warrant by Italy’s anti-terrorism DIGOS police in the northern town of Gaggiano… He was living with his mother, a carer, and two older brothers in the town near Milan…
Police said last night that Touil had been in Italy before the attack. They said he entered illegally in February with a boatload of 90 migrants, before being issued with an order to leave. The officers did not specify whether he had been expelled or, if he had, where he had gone to.
