AFP Chief of Staff General Ricardo Catapang announced here, March 31 that people who were displaced after the encounter between the PNP Special Action Force (SAF) and the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) and Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) last January 25 can now return to their homes.

According to Catapang, from an all-out offensive stance right after the incident the AFP is now focused on the BIFF whose forces are now dwindling and confined far from populated areas.

Evacuees may now return to their homes, he said.

It was earlier reported that around 12,000 people were affected by the hostilities.

Lack of water and other supplies was said to have brought difficulties to the evacuees and some of them are suffering from diarrhea.

Newsmen saw some families still staying on tents along the road and under the coconut trees.
