    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.

    Al Jazeera's Yaara Bou Melhem reports from Iligan City.
