Iraq Saturday reopened its national museum, apparently in response to the mass destruction of ancient artifacts by the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group in the northern city of Mosul.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi vowed to hunt down those who destroy and smuggle the ancient artefacts in the reopening ceremony held in the museum, which is located in central Baghdad, the capital of the country.
