A Filipino policeman takes position outside the Resort World Manila hotel in Pasay City, Philippines, June 2, 2017.

A man carrying a rifle burst into the Resorts World building near Manila's global airport and shot at TV screens, set tables on fire with petrol and stuffed a bag with gambling chips.

At least 36 bodies have been recovered from a casino and hotel complex in Manila after a gunman opened fire in what officials say was a botched armed robbery.

"They can always claim whatever they want to claim", said Philippine National Police Chief Oscar Albayalde.

Gunfire was reported at a hotel and a casino resort in the Philippine capital on Friday, the operator of the complex said, and the Islamic State group quickly claimed responsibility.

The gunman stole gambling chips, shot an LED monitor and set gambling tables ablaze by pouring fuel on them, Gen Dela Rosa said.

Four Taiwanese citizens were among the 35 people who died of suffocation during an attack on an entertainment complex in the Philippines capital Manila, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) confirmed Friday.

"We would like to extend our gratitude to our security team", Reilly said.

All this on a week that has seen the Philippine military battle ISIL-aligned militants in the country's south.

Reportedly, the US President Donald Trump hastily termed the Manila casino shooting as a terrorist attack.

Resorts World Manila is located essentially across the street from the airport.

Outside the complex, relatives of people caught inside waited on Friday morning to hear news of their loved ones.

A statement from ISIS stated an Islamic State fighter, identified as Abou al-Kheir al-Arkhebieli, was the gunman.

At least 54 people were injured, according to initial reports.

Dela Rosa said security footage showed the gunman ignoring a guard who tried to question him at the complex's entrance, then going straight to the casino.

The unrest in Marawi has sparked fears that militants might attack elsewhere to divert the focus of thousands of troops trying to quell the siege.

A DZMM radio reporter on the scene said she saw two ambulances ferrying two people away, one with a bandage on the leg and another in wheelchair.

Resort owner Travellers International Hotel Group Inc said in a statement: "We have been informed of several casualties, the number and identities of whom have yet to be determined". "This particular situation in Manila is not related in any way to a terrorist attack", he said.
