Hundreds of people have died since President Rodrigo Duterte won a landslide election in May, promising to rid society of drugs and crime in six months by killing tens of thousands of criminals. Police figures showed this week that 402 drug suspects had been killed a month into Duterte’s presidency. This figure does not include those slain by suspected vigilantes. / AFP PHOTO / NOEL CELIS / TO GO WITH Philippines-crime-drugs-rights,FOCUS by Noel CelisNOEL CELIS/AFP/Getty Images
