$75 Million Pledged ISIS Targeted UNESCO Sites

Wochit Headline News - Monday, 20 March 2017
On Monday world donors pledged more than $75 million to an historic UNESCO-backed alliance to protect cultural heritage sites threatened by war. The wave of ideological-driven destruction carried out by Islamic State group militants also prompted the pledge. Speaking at a donors' conference in Paris' Louvre Museum, French President Francois Hollande passionately called on more countries to contribute to the newly-created heritage alliance. He called for help push it past its "ambitious" $100 million goal.
