#ShortNews: Marawi Muslim leader hid Christians in his house for 12 days, then helped them escape

In the midst of the bloodshed, stories have emerged of Muslims – who form the majority in the southern Philippine city – putting their lives on the line to protect Christians and to help any desperate souls seeking escape from the bombing by government troops and shooting.

“I cannot tell them that I have Christians in my house for fear that somebody might get wind of the information and tell the ISIS (group),” said Mr Norodin, who refused to abandon them.

So he told the group hiding in his house to “stay put, relax”. “Nothing will happen to you while I’m here,” he assured them.
