Military forces evacuated residents from the southern city of Marawi on Thursday as fighting between soldiers and members of the Islamist Maute group continued. Army bomber planes and fighter jets attacked the city, sending smoke plumes into the horizon. Over 100 people have already died in the clashes after violence broke out on May 23.
