#Philippines: 13 Marines Killed in Fighting with Militants
Local Editor

The Philippine military said 13 marines had been killed in fierce fighting with Muslim militants who have laid siege to southern Marawi city.

It's the biggest single-day loss for government troops since they began fighting militants allied with the Wahhabi Daesh [Arabic acronym for "ISIS" / "ISIL"] group who seized Marawi on May 13 and are still occupying parts of the city.

Military spokesman Col. Edgard Arevalo said the marines were killed in daylong close-quarter combat on Friday. Forty other marines were wounded.

The government earlier said that the unrest had left 20 civilians, 134 militants and 39 army troops dead.
