Philippines War on Drugs Continue

A sign that reads "I am a thief and drug addict, imitate me and this is what will happen to you" is seen next to the corpse of a suspected drug addict and victim of a vigilante-style execution with his hands tied and head wrapped with tape on a street in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines, August 9, 2016. Nearly 1,000 people have been killed by police or vigilantes in the Philippines as President Rodrigo Duterte ramps up his campaign against illegal drugs. Duterte has publicly named hundreds of politicians, military and police personnel, and other influential people allegedly involved in the drug trade and has ordered them to surrender or be hunted down. Duterte won the presidency two months ago by pledging to kill thousands in an all-out war against drugs in a country where drugs and crime are deeply-rooted.
