Philippines' President Rodrigo Duterte answer questions during a press briefing after awarding wounded soldiers, who fight against the insurgents of the Maute group, which has taken over large parts of the Marawi city, during his visit at the military camp hospital in Cagayan De Oro, Philippines June 11, 2017.

Duterte announced the Marawi Crisis was "winding up but at the cost of so many soldiers also".

"But the local government did not coordinate with the military and the military would not have recommended it to push through".

It turned the siblings, aged in their mid 30s, into the most infamous high school alumni of the Protestant Church-run institution, which had been a symbol of religious tolerance in the mostly Muslim city of 200,000 people.

All her seven sons are believed to be involved in the Marawi conflict, according to Banlaoi.

Regardless of whether the Maute brothers are driven out of Marawi, they have established the Philippines as a successful new base for IS, according to Jones, pointing to foreign fighters who have been reported killed in the conflict. "Your being good Samaritans is well-acknowledged and your help will definitely get where it is intended and that is guaranteed", Padilla said.

Earlier, the military has assured that they will not attack or destroy mosques.

Meanwhile, Presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella said authorities have arrested a member of the Maute group listed in the first arrest order issued by Lorenzana on June 1. Government forces and members of the ISIS-inspired Maute Group have been fighting for control of the city since May 23.


"Paano yung patay ko?"

President Rodrigo Duterte declared a martial law in Mindanao on May 23 in response to clashes in Marawi City that began when police and military made efforts to arrest Abu Sayyaf leader Isnilon Hapilon, the so-called emir of Daesh in South East Asia.

"We will work on extending martial law in Mindanao".

Section 18 provides that "the President may declare martial law and suspend the writ of habeas corpus only "in cases of invasion, rebellion or when public safety requires it".

The Court has ordered the consolidation of two petitions seeking to compel Congress to convene in a joint session to review President Duterte's martial law proclamation and his suspension of the write of habeas corpus in Mindanao.

Ferdinand Marcos, Sr. was elected President in 1965 and was re-elected in 1969 for another four-year term that would end in 1973.

Marcos ruled under martial law between 1972 and 1981, a period which was marked by complaints of human rights abuses as the government battled an armed communist insurgency.
