P79-M in cash, checks found in fallen Maute stronghold

State forces discovered Tuesday at least P79 million in cash and checks in a house in Marawi City after retaking a stronghold of the Maute fighters they have been battling since last month.

The Philippine Marines first found P52.2 million in cash at a house located near the extremists' machine gun nest in the Mapandi area.

The troops then found checks worth P27 million in the same area.

Also recovered by the Marines in Mapandi are cheques worth P27M pay to cash

There were no other details about the operation.

President Duterte earlier said that Maute terrorists are being funded by foreign terror groups and illegal drug money.

Duterte placed the entire Mindanao island under martial rule last Tuesday after Maute and other other bandit groups attacked Marawi on May 23.
