The head of the United Nations' cultural watchdog on Monday slammed the destruction by Daesh jihadists of a famous, ancient temple at Syria's ruins of Palmyra as a "war crime."

"This destruction is a new war crime and an immense loss for the Syrian people and for humanity," UNESCO chief Irina Bokova said in a statement, adding the "perpetrators must be accountable for their actions."
