Iraq's national museum reopened after 12 years of painstaking efforts during which close to a third of 15,000 stolen pieces were recoveredIraq's national museum officially reopened Saturday after 12 years of painstaking efforts during which close to a third of 15,000 pieces looted during the US-led invasion were recovered. The reopening was brought forward in what officials said was a response to the destruction of priceless artefacts by Islamic State group jihadists in the northern city of Mosul. "We have been preparing to reopen for the past couple of months, the museum should be open to everyone," Qais Hussein Rashid, the deputy tourism and antiquities minister, told AFP. On Thursday, the jihadists who have occupied the second city of Mosul since June last year released a video in which militants smash ancient statues with sledgehammers in the city's museum.

Masked Hamas militants take part in a 2005 rally next to the Gaza-Egypt border in RafahAn Egyptian court on Saturday branded the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas a "terrorist" group over its alleged links with jihadists behind deadly attacks on security forces in the Sinai Peninsula. The ruling took ties between Hamas and the authorities which ousted Egypt's elected Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013 to a new low. Hamas condemned what it called "a great disgrace which soils the reputation of Egypt". It came almost a month after a court on January 31 designated Hamas's armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, a "terrorist" group.
