Victory in Marawi

The Philippine flag is held by a soldier after government troops cleared the area from pro-Islamic State militant groups inside a war-torn area in Bangolo town, Marawi City on Monday. The Armed Forces of the Philippines announced on Monday the end of the 5-month Marawi occupation after neutralizing the Maute terrorists in the Islamic city.
