Iraq's Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has blamed ISIL for the destruction of a centuries old mosque in Mosul.

The Grand al-Nuri Mosque is where ISIL's leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi declared a so-called Caliphate three years ago.

Iraqi forces say they have video evidence to prove it.

Al Jazeera’s Bernard Smith reports from Erbil.
