The United States Embassy has issued a warning to U.S. Citizens in the Southern Philippines after ISIS linked terrorists swept through the region taking hostages and beheading a Police chief.
Fox News reported: The United States Embassy issued a warning to U.S. citizens in a southern Philippine city on Wednesday after terrorists linked to the Islamic State swept through the region, beheading a police chief, burning buildings, seizing a Catholic priest and his worshippers and raising the black flag of ISIS, officials said.
The embassy suspended mission personnel travel to Mindanao as they analyzed the chaos that has left at least 21 people dead.
“While the U.S. Embassy has no information that the events in Marawi City represent a direct threat to U.S. citizens or U.S. interests in the Philippines, we encourage U.S. citizens to review personal security plans, avoid large crowds and gatherings, and remain vigilant at all times,” the embassy said in a statement.
President Rodrigo Duterte declared martial law for 60 days across the southern third of the nation — home to 22 million people — and vowed to take tough action.
“We are in a state of emergency,” Duterte said Wednesday after he cut short a trip to Moscow and flew back to Manila. “I have a serious problem in Mindanao and the ISIS footprints are everywhere.”
He threatened to extend it to the whole country “in order to protect the people.”
