MARAWI CITY – Authorities recovered 2 homemade bombs inside the Mindanao State University (MSU) compound on Monday when they raided what was believed to be a safe house of the Islamic State-linked Maute terror group.
Joint elements of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police combed through the university campus around 12 a.m., armed with three search warrants for illegal possession of firearms and explosives and illegal drugs.
Eleven people were brought into questioning after the raid, all of whom denied having links to any terror group.
The CIDG is now conducting background checks on their identities to verify if any arrest warrant was issued against them.
