Marawi City in the Philippines has been under attack since May 23rd, headed up by an extremists group called the Maute group. A group of five, Christian construction workers and five Muslim police officers hid out in a basement in the town over from Marawi City. The construction workers were working on a job in Barangay village, a town over, that started before the attack started three weeks ago, and the police officers found the basement during the attacks. After they ran out of food, the ten men decided to attempt an escape. They ran out of the basement together and were immediately shot at, and two of the five construction workers were hit in the leg but kept running and successfully escaped.
