    On 23 May 2017, Daesh-aligned militants seized parts of Marawi city on the southern Philippines island of Mindanao. Philippines military and police forces have spent subsequent months attempting to retake the city. The fighting has displaced hundreds of thousands of civilians, and led to significant damage of Marawi’s city centre. Approximately 600 militants, 129 soldiers and 45 civilians have been killed. A small number of Daesh fighters remain, reinforced by local recruits.
