Philippine forces fight rebels in Zamboanga

A week of fighting in the southern Philippines has forced thousands of people from their homes.

At least 40 rebels from the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) have reportedly surrendered to the army - with more expected to follow.

The MNLF have been hiding out in villages in Zamboanga since 9 September.

Watch the exchange of gunfire as Philippine troops moved in on the rebels.
