Islamist uprising in the Philippines

Filipino soldiers put down an uprising by the Islamists from the Moro National Liberation Front, which broke out in the Philippines earlier this month, and freed all hostages. According to AFP, 183 Islamist insurgents were killed and 292 militants captured during a military operation. The loss of the Philippine government was 23 soldiers and policemen, as well as 12 civilians. In three weeks of fighting in fires, more than 10 thousand houses burned down. About 100 thousand people were forced to leave their homes and move to temporary shelters, in connection with which a humanitarian crisis arose in the country, which could take months to overcome.
