From InterAksyon (May 25): Fighting continues in Marawi – reports (12:24 PM)

Fresh fighting has broken out in Marawi City, with media reporting the Air Force conducting at least one air strike late Thursday morning and new fires raging as government forces resumed operations to clear out gunmen of the Maute group.

Military helicopters continuously flew overhead as gunfire was heard from the city center as black smoke rose from what was reported to be a market and explosion were heard from the direction of Barangays Sadok, Banggulo and Marinaut.

There were also reports that the extremists may be holding more hostages aside from those they had earlier been reported holding, including a Catholic priest.
