Photo Gallery: Christians gathered for the first mass in two years

Christians gathered for the first mass in two years at their local church after it was recaptured from ISIS
A handful of Christians celebrated their first Sunday mass at a local burnt-out church in two years after their town was recaptured from ISIS.
Those living in the Christian town of Qaraqosh made their way to the church despite the chaos continuing around them as the Battle for Mosul enters its third week.
The bell tower at the Grand Immaculate Church was damaged, statues were decapitated and missals strewn across the nave floor.
A statue of Jesus on a cross was damaged and the church is still covered in soot from the fire the jihadists lit when they retreated just days earlier.
Photos were collected from different sits
