Philippines: Maute armed group using child soldiers in Marawi

More than a hundred people have been killed in a siege that has continued for more than a week in Marawi City in the southern Philippines.

The Philippine military is battling an armed group called the Maute, which supports ISIL.

Their fighters are mostly in their twenties, but there is evidence that young boys are being used as soldiers on the frontline.

Al Jazeera's Jamela Alindogan reports from Marawi.
