Police kill hundreds as the Philippines’ new President Rodrigo Duterte orders war on drugs-media-5

In this photo taken on July 19, 2016, shows residents behind a police line looking at the two dead bodies of an alleged drug dealer after a drug bust operation that turned into a gun fight in Manila. A United Nations human rights official has told AFP she expects to visit the Philippines to look into alleged extrajudicial killings, and sought guarantees for her as well as witnesses’ safety. More than 1,500 people have died, police said, as the government launched crackdown on illegal drugs after Rodrigo Duterte won a landslide presidential election victory in May with a vow to kill tens of thousands of criminals. / AFP PHOTO / NOEL CELISNOEL CELIS/AFP/Getty Images
