It also wants to ban betting, karaoke and so-called "relationship dating".

Duterte, however, noted that ensuring the safety of civilians while going after terrorists is a challenge for security forces.

The area of the town occupied by the militants had shrunk to less than 10 per cent, military spokesman Brigadier General Restituto Padilla told a news conference, adding that the army was pressing on to meet Mr Duterte's deadline but it was not easy.

Government troops conduct a check point along a highway leading to Marawi three days after Muslim militants lay siege in Marawi city, the southern Philippines, Thursday, May 25, 2017.

He said they have yet to still account for the number of foreign fighters helping local militants in Marawi City.

The clashes started on May 23 when Philippine forces staged a raid to arrest Isnilon Hapilon, a wanted leader of the Maute group, following tip-offs on his hideout.

After the military retreated in the face of a phalanx of armed guards, about 400 militants quickly fanned out across the city, riding trucks mounted with 50-caliber machine guns and armed with rocket-propelled grenades and high-powered rifles.

Lucman said that many of those trapped were on the verge of starvation, which also gave them the courage to leave.

Photographer Gabriele Sciotto said he was on his way home from a pub when he saw a man running toward him telling him to turn around and run because there was a terrorist attack. "There was a huge, grand plan to seize the whole of Marawi", he said.

Government forces have bombarded Marawi with air strikes and waged fierce street-to-street battles with hundreds of gunmen since they began a rampage through residential areas waving the black flags of the Islamic State. In addition, he also proposed an innovative battlefield solution whereby local Maoist and Islamist rebels could join forces with the military in collectively fighting terrorism, something which could potentially work out to their political benefit after the conflict is over.

At least 70 people were rescued Saturday as intense fighting continued, including 23 teachers from Dansalan College, who were with a year-old baby, seven other children, and seven other adults. But police say he didn't shoot anyone and tried to steal $2 million before he killed himself, which leads them to believe it wasn't Islamic terrorism. Reuters could not independently verify the account.

A Philippine air force plane dropping bombs on militants killed 11 soldiers and wounded seven others in "friendly fire" as government forces were struggling to rout the assailants in Marawi, the military said. The Indonesian official called for intensified regional cooperation to curb the terror threat. "And they admit they simply don't have the precision-guided munitions that would make aerial bombardment to take out particular houses feasible".

At least 134 people are believed to have been rescued.

The bodies of eight laborers who had been shot in the head were found in a ravine outside Marawi last Sunday.

British transport police say there are reports of multiple casualties following a major incident on London Bridge.

The last siege the military had to deal with, the Zamboanga siege in 2013, took more than 3 weeks to end.
