Dominican Father Olivier Poquillon is seen on a site visit to Our Lady of the Hour Church in Mosul, Iraq, with a UNESCO team. Christians and Muslims hope a project to reconstruct Mosul's iconic places of worship, badly damaged by Islamic State militants during their 2014-2017 occupation of the city, will also help to rebuild trust between Iraq's fractured religious communities.
