Human rights groups say 12,000 people have been killed in Rodrigo Duterte's war on drugs. The Philippines president has bragged himself of killing criminals. His legal advisor tells DW, “We can kill out of self-defense.”
As Philippines President Duterte's war on drugs rages on, Amnesty International is calling for a UN investigation. At least 6,000 people have been killed by police, and rights groups think the number is much higher.
