"Slaughter them all"

This New York Times article by photojournalist Daniel Berehulak is certainly not for the faint-hearted, but serves as a stark expose of the brutal anti-drug war being waged in the Phillipines at the instigation of President Rodrigo Duterte. Drug users and dealers (and even those simply suspected of such activities) are falling victim to extrajudicial murders committed by both the police and vigilantes. What's perhaps most horrifying is that Duterte has claimed Donald Trump has personally endorsed the campaign of terror.
