Duterte tells Philippine police to shoot dead lockdown troublemakers

MANILA: Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has told security forces they should shoot dead anyone causing “trouble” in areas locked down due to the coronavirus pandemic.
About half the country’s roughly 110 million people are currently under quarantine -- including millions in deep poverty, left jobless by tough restrictions on movement.
“My orders are to the police and military, also village officials, that if there is trouble or the situation arises that people fight and your lives are on the line, shoot them dead,” Duterte said. (AFP)
