Islamic radicals who have besieged much of a southern city in the Philippines are trying to establish a regional branch of ISIS in that country.
The Philippine military says the radicals include foreign fighters and local gunmen.
The military is conducting air strikes, trying to regain control of the city of Marawi that has been overrun by ISIS.
Marawi is located on the island of Mindanao, where more than 100 people have died and 70,000 have fled since terrorists launched their attack.
Among the dead are nine Christians who were murdered merely for being followers of Jesus Christ.
