    The Philippine military is preparing for the final assault against the Maute armed group in the southern city of Marawi.

    After a three-month siege, the fighters - who are linked to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) group - now control only a 500sq metre area. But the full extent of the destruction is only now becoming clear.
