Kirkuk’s historic stone bridge gets restored

Authorities in Kirkuk province have restored a historic landmark in Kirkuk city that was damaged more than five decades ago.

The 1875 stone bridge, which leads to one of the historic Kirkuk citadel’s gates, was constructed during Ottoman times under Nafiz Pasha, the ruler of Kirkuk. It was severely damaged in 1954.
