WATCH: The battle at nightfall in Marawi Philippines

Tracer ammunition light up the Marawi sky at nightfall as government forces continue to attack Maute terrorists entrenched in the city on Friday.

Areas of the city on fire are also prominently seen on night-vision cameras.
The militants holed up in Marawi have been reduced to a "small resistance" after troops crippled their logistics and some fighters have fled from the battle, military officials earlier said.

"In a few more days it could be over," -Armed Forces Chief of Staff General Eduaro Año

Officials have said that, among the several hundred militants who seized the town on , there were about 40 foreigners from Indonesia and Malaysia but also fighters from India, Saudi Arabia, Morocco and Chechnya.

AFP said the military believed that "more or less 100" civilians were still being held hostage by the militants. Earlier this week, officials put at several hundred the number of people being held as human shields or trapped in their homes.
