Daesh's (ISIS) flag flying over Iraq's Fallujah is in tatters and its fighters are dead or gone, leaving behind a broken city of bomb-rigged buildings and empty streets.Other remnants of Daesh's rule are also still in evidence: Security forces showed AFP a marriage document issued by the militants, and one building was marked as their "Agricultural Center of the State of Fallujah".The Daesh fighters still in Fallujah are dead, some of them decomposing in the searing summer heat amid rubble at the site of an apparent airstrike. Bodies of dead fighters also lay in the courtyard of what was once a school, while more were said to be buried below. Parts of Fallujah are relatively untouched, with houses only scarred by bullets or shrapnel if they are damaged at all.
