The president of the Philippines has attracted attention for his controversial anti-drug policy. More than 3,600 people in the Philippines have been killed since he began his nationwide war on drug.
Antonio Halili had presented himself as an anti-drug hard-liner, though he also appeared on President Duterte's "narco list." His killer managed to escape undetected.

Religious groups and concerned citizens in the Philippines took to the streets to protest the brazen killing of three Catholic priests over the past several months. Ana P. Santos reports from Manila.
The Hague-based ICC has launched an initial probe to investigate claims of crimes against humanity as part of the Philippines' deadly war on drugs. President Duterte "will argue his case personally," a spokesman said.
