Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Philippines: Pace of rebuilding in Marawi criticised years after conflict” – below is their description.
The Philippines is marking four years since a large-scale military operation against an armed group in the battle of Marawi, which saw government forces fight ISIL-affiliated rebels for more than five months.
The government says reconstruction projects in the city are on schedule. But critics say much more can be done.
