Tue, 30 May 2017 

Travellers in Marawai City in the Mindanao region in the Philippines are advised to remain indoors after martial law was declared in the country, according to the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).

“The implications aren't yet clear, but government officials have said measures will include the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus, the imposition of curfews and establishment of checkpoints. Some airlines servicing Mindanao are offering pre-booked customers alternative options to taking their scheduled flight, in light of this announcement,” the FCO said in a statement. 
The FCO has also warned against all travel to western and parts of central Mindanao including Marawi City and against all but essential travel to the remainder of Mindanao.

Agents are advised to alert travellers of the danger and rearrange accordingly.
