ILIGAN CITY, Philippines — Authorities have raised the reward money for the capture of a Maute leader who is believed to have survived the recent military air strikes in the towns of Tubaran and Pagayawan in Lanao del Sur.

From P3 million, the city and provincial governments of Marawi and Lanao del Sur, respectively, as well as the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao raised the amount to P6 million for the capture of Owaida Benito Marohombsar, alias Abu Dhar, Col. Romeo Brawner of the Joint Task Force Ranao said in a recent media briefing.

The militants escaped in different directions after their bomb-making facilities and bunkers were destroyed during the air strikes on Sunday.

The military offensive forced some 10,000 people to flee to evacuation centers.

The military said that on Monday, some of the evacuees have returned home.
