The real work begins in Marawi, a day after President Rodrigo Duterte declared the city free from terrorists.

Lanao del Sur Crisis Management Committee spokesperson, Zia Alonto Adiong said Marawi's post-conflict assessment teams are now preparing for the return of displaced residents.

But while the top priority is to bring back normalcy, he said there may be a need to keep additional security measures in place, depending on the situation on ground.

Adiong added, at least 61 people remain unaccounted for.
