The assault on museums and libraries sadly has far too frequent echoes: from the destruction of the Iraqi national museum, from the Serbian assault on Sarajevo’s library, and from the Islamist attack on manuscript collections in Mali. This is a hatred of arts, of beauty, of knowledge, of our collective human wisdom.

    This is a disaster.
    Sad to learn of this desecration. No doubt the work of Islamic fundamentalist loonies.
    Religion continues its march of horrors.
