Philippine security forces arrested on Wednesday the main financier and logistics supporter of the pro-Islamic State militants who have for weeks been battling government troops for control of a southern town, the army said.
The Philippine security authorities need more time to make assessment on whether or not to lift the martial law in Mindanao in the southern Philippine region, Philippine Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said on Monday.
The Philippine government is readying its plan to rebuild the besieged southern city of Marawi, which was devastated by the ongoing war between the troops and the militants inspired by the Islamic State (IS), a government official said Thursday.

The Philippines expressed on Friday its welcome to Australia's offer to send its intelligence-gathering planes to help the country crush the militants allied with the Islamic State (IS) in the southern Philippine city of Marawi.
U.S. troops are on the ground near Marawi City in the southern Philippines, but are not involved in fighting Islamist militants who have held parts of the city for more than three weeks, a Philippines military spokesman said on Wednesday.
