Philippines 'At War': Civilians evacuated as army takes fight to terrorists in Marawi













Security checkpoints were in place along the road to Marawi City, Sunday following the area's evacuation last week as fighting between soldiers and members of the Islamist Maute group continued. Evacuees from Marawi gathered at the provincial capitol complex in Lanao Del Sur to consult lists of names recovered and those still missing in the conflict zone. Over 180 people have already died after the Maute group, which has pledged allegiance to self-proclaimed Islamic State.
