The head of the Philippines Catholic Church has criticised the government’s bloody campaign against drugs.
Manila Cardinal Luis Tagle condemned “those who kill even the helpless”.
Police say that since President Rodrigo Duterte launched a campaign against drug dealers 14 months ago, 3,500 people have been killed.
But rights groups say the number is much higher, and that many of those targeted are innocent. One high-profile case this week spurred new criticism.
Reuters reported that at least 90 people were shot dead this week, with 32 killed in one day alone in Bulacan province, north of the capital Manila.
