A few militants fight on in Philippine city ripped to shreds

Volunteers take part in a massive clean up of Mapandi village after being cleared of Islamic State group-linked militants in Marawi city in southern Philippines Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017. Two days after President Rodrigo Duterte declared the liberation of Marawi city, the military announced the killing of 13 more suspected militants in the continuing military offensive.
