ILIGAN CITY - Vice President Leni Robredo on Monday visited a community of home-based evacuees in Barangay Tubod in this city and turned over 3 sewing machines from private donors.

These evacuees were just some of the residents of the southern Islamic city, which had been the battleground between government forces and Islamic State-linked terror groups for more than a month now.

The fighting has resulted to 375 deaths, including soldiers and civilians, as of June 22.
