In Syria, the self-proclaimed Islamic State has executed an antiquities expert in the ancient city of Palmyra. ISIL captured Palmyra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in May. On Tuesday, militants reportedly beheaded Khaled Assad, who spent more than 50 years working to preserve Palmyra, and hung his body on a column in the ancient city.
