Residents return to Marawi

A soldier (right) talks to a resident (2nd right) returning to inspect her home near the battle area of Mapandi in Marawi on Tuesday, a day after the military declared the fighting over. Residents of a southern Philippine city where Islamic State supporters waged a brutal five-month battle began returning home on October 24, but gunfire greeted them as soldiers scoured the streets for remaining militants.
