Marawi's ruins a reminder of Islamic State's devastating reach
It had only been a week since Mohammad Ali Acampong finished renovating his house when bombs and bullets struck Marawi City.

Two years ago, pro-Islamic State militants took over in a bid to carve out their own 'Wilayah', or province, forcing nearly 100,000 people to flee in what became the Philippine militar''s toughest and longest conflict since World War Two.

Dilapidated structures are seen at the most affected war-torn area of Marawi City, Lanao del Sur province, Philippines, May 11, 2019. The area remains abandoned two years since pro-Islamic State militants began their attacks on May 23, 2017. Marawi was once one of the most picturesque cities in the Philippines. About half of it is now charred concrete and skeletons of buildings, the effects of 154 days of air strikes and artillery by the military, and booby traps the rebels laid everywhere to keep them at bay.
