Archaeologists in Russia are offering help to rebuild Syria's ancient city of Palmyra following its recapture from ISIL.

Syrian government forces, backed by Russian air power, gained control of the city earlier this month after days of intense fighting, state media and a monitoring group said.

Palmyra, known as the "bride of the desert", was a tourist attraction and had tens of thousands of tourists a year before the conflict started in 2011.

The group also destroyed the infamous Tadmur prison, where thousands of government opponents were reported to have been tortured.
