Jihadist tunnels uncover Assyrian winged bulls in Mosul

Jihadist tunnels uncover Assyrian winged bulls in MosulCrawl through a labyrinth of narrow tunnels in near total darkness and suddenly they appear: two great winged bulls dating from the Assyrian empire found intact under the ground of Mosul. The jihadists dug the network of tunnels to plunder artefacts under a hill reputedly housing the tomb of the Prophet Jonah, the Nabi Yunus shrine which they dynamited in July 2014. “We fear it could all collapse at any time,” entombing the treasures, said Layla Salih who is in charge of antiquities for Nineveh province.
