Russian archaeologists say they will help restore the ruins of the previously ISIS-controlled city of Palmyra, Syria.
Palmyra — nicknamed "the bride of the desert" — was once a main tourist attraction in central Syria and is a UNESCO heritage site.
ISIS took control of the city last May, and Syrian forces backed by Russia regained control in March.
