BAGHDAD, IRAQ: Picture taken 13 March 2004 shows the broken head of an Assyrian era (1894-1881B.C.) lion which was damaged during the looting of Iraq's national museum in Baghdad in April 2003, following the US-led invasion and the fall of the Iraqi capital. Nearly a year after the war, experts at the Iraq Museum still remember the horror when looters plundered more than 14,000 objects as they struggle to rebuild its facilities and a world class collection. Earlier this month Japan and France announced that they have agreed to support the reconstruction of the country's only archaeological museum, the Iraq National Library and the Iraq National Archives, which were badly damaged and looted during the war nearly one year ago.
