Ground zero Marawi

by

“We have been getting reports that Christians have been targeted. But I must emphasize this one important factor- Muslim have been trying to protect them, teaching them Muslim prayers, giving them the Muslim garb so they are protected. Some Muslims have also been targeted.”

These words from Al Jazeera correspondent Jamela Aisha Alindogan, who was on ground zero covering the unfolding event.

Armed conflicts put a lot of people at risk, not least among them journalists. Here are some snaps of ground zero Marawi taken by Alindogan who granted The Filipino Times’ request to publish them, along with her captions.

‪Meet the wonderful and brave Khana-Anauar Marabur, a Maranao rescuer “We offer our lives,face the bullets just to save civilians.”‬‬

Fatima Coro is 80 years old. She fled Marawi with her daughter. She is with her 8-year-old great-granddaughter Amana at an evacuation center. They are here waiting for free food.

State forces are here to ensure distribution of aid is orderly. I was here 3 days ago and it seems as though number of evacuees here has more than doubled.

Thousands lining up at one of the checkpoints. They came from other areas too, apart from Marawi. They have to present an ID or get themselves registered, else they can’t enter Iligan City.

Even medical centers were not spared. Here, a bike inside a hospital room. Empty shells. Broken glasses everywhere.Looting.Chaos.

Sumaya Limpao gave birth to her first born three days ago. What do I name him, she asked me.

I suggested “call him Hammed.”

Thousands have already fled. While most stay with clan members in nearby villages, there are those who have nowhere to go…. so they stay in evacuation camps like this one.

Previously occupied by the Maute group. Dried blood splattered everywhere. This is inside a medical center

Marawi City Police Chief Parson Asadil was previously reported to have been beheaded by Maute. Well, he is alive.
