  2. 2. 7 JUN 2017. BEIJING, CHINA. REUTERS/DAMIR SAGOLJ At one of the most treacherous and least restored stretches of China's Great Wall, a line of pack mules halted upon emerging from the gloom of a dense forest draped in mist and dew. Laden with 150 kg (330 pounds) of bricks each, the seven animals finally got moving in response to the coaxing and swearing of their masters, eager to gain altitude before the sun climbed high in the sky.

  3. 3. For more than a decade, mules have been crucial in the effort to restore Jiankou, a serpentine 20-km (12- mile) section of the wall about 70 km (44 miles) north of central Beijing that is notorious for its ridges and perilous slopes. "The path is too steep and the mountains are too high, so the bricks can only be transported by mules," said local mule owner Cao Xinhua, who has worked on Great Wall restoration projects in the mountains north of Beijing for 10 years. 7 JUN 2017.

  4. 4. Where they could, workers would use the original bricks that have come off the wall over the centuries. When they found none, they used new bricks made to exacting specifications. 7 JUN 2017.

  5. 5. "We have to stick to the original format, the original material and the original craftsmanship, so that we can better preserve the historical and cultural values," said Cheng Yongmao, the engineer leading Jiankou's restoration. Cheng, 61, who has repaired 17 km (11 miles) of the Great Wall since 2003, belongs to the 16th generation in a long line of traditional brick makers. 7 JUN 2017. BEIJING, CHINA.

  6. 6. A government clampdown on pollution has forced the closure of almost all brick-making factories in Beijing and nearby provinces, Cheng said. If he ran out of bricks, Cheng added, he would have to look for bricks left elsewhere or request the central government to consider reopening some brick factories. 7 JUN 2017. BEIJING, CHINA.

  7. 7. Famed for its rugged beauty, Jiankou, which is Chinese for an arrow's nock, or notch for a bowstring, was built in the twilight years of the Ming dynasty in the 1600s, but is young compared with other sections dating back two millennia. Intensive repairs on the Jiankou section of the wall in the past year have been led by the district government keen to preserve the wall's natural beauty and shore up its disintegrating steps. 7 JUN 2017.

  8. 8. The restoration began in 2005 and is now in its third phase, making slow progress because the uneven terrain allows use only of basic tools such as chisels, hammers, pickaxes and shovels. Authorities' meticulous approach followed widespread outrage last year sparked by botched restoration efforts on stretches of the wall. 7 JUN 2017. BEIJING, CHINA.

  9. 9. Authorities in the northeastern province of Liaoning, home to a 700-year-old section of the wall, paved its ramparts with sand and cement, resulting in what critics said looked more like a pedestrian pavement. Soon after those disastrous repairs, the State Administration of Cultural Heritage said it would investigate any improperly executed wall preservation projects. 7 JUN 2017. BEIJING, CHINA.

  24. 24. Just a tenth of the wall built during the Ming dynasty has been repaired, said Dong Yaohui, vice president of the China Great Wall Association. "In the past, we would restore the walls so that they would be visited as tourist hot spots," he said, by contrast with today's objective of repairing and preserving it for future generations. "This is progress." 7 JUN 2017. BEIJING, CHINA. REUTERS/DAMIR SAGOLJ WRITING BY STELLA QIU AND RYAN WOO GALLERY PHOTOS 18/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 14 - 19, 2017 24 June 7 , 2017

  31. 31. There was a smell of death in Mosuls Old City when Ayman Hashem came back this week to see what happened to his home. His neighborhood was unrecognizable. All thats left is rubble and the bodies of families trapped underneath, the 23-year-old said. He flipped through photos on his phone, showing picture after picture of wreckage. His own house was cut in half, he said. He had to cover his nose with his tee-shirt because of the smell of buried, rotting bodies.

  32. 32. The population, once numbering 3 million, is battered and exhausted, with hundreds of thousands displaced. Without a swift campaign to rebuild Mosul, aid and rights groups warn the current humanitarian crisis will balloon and resentment will likely give way to extremism, undermining the victory. If the western half is ignored it will produce a social disaster and this social disaster will create bigger destruction if its not addressed, said Khatab Mohammed al-Najjar, a resident of eastern Mosul who watched the Old City burn from across the Tigris River during the operation. GALLERY PHOTOS 18/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 14 - 19, 2017 32
  33. 33. West Mosul produced Daesh, and it is very possible it may produce a new Daesh, he said, referring to west Mosuls historically more religious and traditional residents. He used the Arabic acronym for IS. When Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared victory in Mosul Monday, he pledged reconstruction would begin soon. But his government still struggles to finance day-to-day workings of the state amid low oil prices. GALLERY PHOTOS 18/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 14 - 19, 2017 33
  34. 34. Thousands of Mosul families have been left without a home. Schools have been leveled, utility grids wrecked, highways pounded into broken dirt roads. All five of the citys bridges spanning the Tigris River have been damaged. The main hospital complex where a battle raged for more than a month is a burned out shell. Mosuls airport looks like a derelict parking lot, booby-trapped with explosives by fleeing IS fighters. GALLERY PHOTOS 18/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 14 - 19, 2017 34
  35. 35. In eastern Mosul, the destruction was less intense. More than 160,000 of the 176,000 people who fled the east have returned, according to the U.N. Residents have begun rebuilding homes, shops have reopened, and demining is underway. But west of the Tigris, neighborhoods have been rendered into ghost towns. There, coalition strikes killed some 5,805 civilians between Feb. 19 and June 19, according to Airwars, a London- based monitoring group tracking civilian deaths resulting from coalition actions. GALLERY PHOTOS 18/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 14 - 19, 2017 35
  36. 36. Fewer than a tenth of the more than 730,000 people who fled western Mosul have filtered back. Saif Mohammed recently re- opened his sandwich shop on a main avenue in the west, repairing war damage with the help of a $5,000 loan from relatives. On the same street, only two or three other shops are open. The other storefronts are bombed out and burned, the corrugated Iron doors warped by explosions. GALLERY PHOTOS 18/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 14 - 19, 2017 36
  37. 37. His shop is a bet that residents will return. But what people really need is government help, he said. If the government doesnt give money, there wont be any rebuilding. Hiyam Mohammed hid in her home with her family on the edge of the Old City throughout the fight. They could see the cemetery from their house. GALLERY PHOTOS 18/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 14 - 19, 2017 37
  38. 38. Some days the funerals lasted from dawn into the night. There were so many bodies piled up, it looked like a hill, she said. I thought I was going crazy seeing this. They didnt even have time to wash the dead. She said the only way to justice is if the government and coalition pay compensation to those who lost relatives or property. GALLERY PHOTOS 18/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 14 - 19, 2017 38
  39. 39. The government brought Daesh to us, she said, referring to sectarian rule that fueled Sunni extremism and corruption that weakened the countrys security forces. This mess is Gods revenge for that. But some in the security forces have resentments of their own, blaming Mosul residents for supporting IS. The people here have always had a rebellious nature, so they should take some responsibility for what has happened, said Maj. Imad Hassan, a federal police officer from Baghdad. GALLERY PHOTOS 18/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 14 - 19, 2017 39
  40. 40. During the campaign, his unit fought to capture a stretch of the corniche running along the Tigris, hammering it with artillery for weeks to clear out IS resistance. The former municipal center was shredded, rows of buildings blackened, palm trees lining the boulevard burned. I hope this destruction teaches them their lesson, he said. Iraqi and coalition officials say the devastation was the result of the Islamic State groups tenacious grip. IS transformed the city into a fortress. Its fighters used hospitals and schools as military bases, moved civilians from the rural outskirts into central neighborhoods to use as shields from airstrikes and rigged hundreds of houses and roads with explosives. GALLERY PHOTOS 18/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 14 - 19, 2017 40
  41. 41. Nearly 10 years ago, Maj. Maher Aziz Khalaf fought IS predecessor, al-Qaida, in Mosul alongside U.S. forces. But when he rolled into western Mosul with the first wave of Iraqi special forces troops in early February he said he immediately realized this battle would alter the city in a way previous fights hadnt. In 2008 it was different. We would just identify which houses the terrorists were living in, come in at night and arrest them, he said. We were fighting gangs, not an entire city. GALLERY PHOTOS 18/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 14 - 19, 2017 41
  42. 42. A coalition spokesman, Col. Joe Scrocca, said the forces had to balance between protecting non-combatants and infrastructure on one hand and moving quickly on the other. Another factor, he said, was that the longer it took to free the city, the more danger civilians were in, whether from lack of food or IS retaliation. Hesitant to risk casualties along their own troops, Iraqi military commanders relied on airpower and artillery to clear neighborhoods where a handful of IS fighters armed with light weapons and civilians as human shields repeatedly stalled entire units of Iraqs military. GALLERY PHOTOS 18/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 14 - 19, 2017 42
  43. 43. As the fight moved to the Old City, rights groups and the U.N. warned the coalition and Iraqi forces against using large munitions. Still, the U.S.-led coalition repeatedly approved the use of 500- and 2,000-pound bombs inside the densely populated district. As waves of civilians fled the Old City, more than a dozen individuals told the AP they knew of multiple families killed under their homes by what they believed to be airstrikes. GALLERY PHOTOS 18/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 14 - 19, 2017 43
  44. 44. The buildings can be rebuilt, but the human lives lost cannot, said Iraqi special forces Lt. Gen. Abdul-Ghani al- Asadi from a base on the edge of Old City on Tuesday. But the buildings in the Old City were all very old anyway, he said. Now we can demolish them and build apartment buildings. GALLERY PHOTOS 18/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 14 - 19, 2017 44
