EBAG01. Baghdad (Iraq), 28/02/2015.- Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi (C) inspects antiquities during the re-opening ceremony of the Iraqi National Museum in Baghdad, Iraq, 28 February 2015. Al-Abadi reopened the museum in central Baghdad almost 12 years after it was looted in the wake of the 2003 US-led invasion of the country. Around one-third of an estimated 15,000 artefacts stolen from the museum in the post-invasion chaos have been retrieved over the years, according to Iraqi officials. The Tourism Ministry said the reopening of the Baghdad Museum was a reply to Islamic State's campaign of destruction in the northern city of Mosul. (Bagdad) EFE/EPA/ALI ABBAS less
