Philippines' rebels distance themselves from ISIL-inspired groups

The largest Muslim rebel group in the Philippines has expressed support for a new edict issued against radicalisation.

The Moro Islamic Liberation Front has been trying to distance itself from ISIL-inspired fighters battling the military in the Mindanao region.

The front does not want these groups to get in the way of their demand for autonomy.
