After the Siege: Refugees in Zamboanga City

In September 2013, the city of Zamboanga became the battle ground between rebels and government forces. Many were displaced as a result, most of them from indigenous tribes that live in the coastline of the city. Their homes were razed down and lost most of their personal properties. The survivors resettled in other parts of the city. But some chose to go back to rebuild their original settlement with the help of the government.
