Philippines: Government officials visit devastated Marawi battle zone

News , Philippines - 14 November 2017
Mayors and government officials from Marawi City and Lanao del Sur visited Marawi City's battle zone for the first time on November 14, 2017. They were escorted by military as they were clearing up the area for possible landmines and planted explosives around the battle zone. The rebuilding effort has begun in the Philippine city of Marawi, after the government declared an end to months of fighting in the region on Monday. The siege began in May, when the Philippine security forces tried to arrest Isnilon Hapilon, a militant on the FBI's most wanted list for his leadership of Abu Sayyaf, Isis' regional Philippines group. The government estimates that the rebuilding effort will cost more than a billion US dollars.
