    Rebels fighting against government forces appear to be losing ground in Zamboanga City in the southern Philippines. About 100,000 people are believed to have been displaced during the 10 days of fighting, but now there are reports of troops moving from house-to-house, seeking out the last of the rebels and their hostages. Al Jazeera's Marga Ortigas reports from Zamboanga.
