Philippine refugees unable to return home

Six months after deadly siege ended in the southern island of Mindanao, the displaced remain in evacuation centres.

    It has been more than six months since separatist fighters in the southern Phillipines took hundreds of civilians hostage, leading to a standoff with the army.

    The siege, which killed at least 80 people, ended after more 20 days of fighting. 

    But those dispaced by the conflict are struggling to rebuild their lives.
