Marawi, before and after the siege

I visited Marawi City often long before the siege, and accumulated some photographs of the place over the years. Here are comparison pictures of a few areas before and after the 2017 war.

From afar, you can’t see much of the damage of the buildings. The upper shot was taken in 2004, the post siege picture was shot May 2019. Maybe the same spot, but the trees in the foreground have grown taller. MindaNews photo by BOBBY TIMONERA

The padian, or market area, as it was in 2007, and in May 2018. I’m not sure though if these were the same streets. MindaNews photo by BOBBY TIMONERA
