In the Philippines, a leading lawyer fighting against President Rodrigo Duterte’s drug war was shot and killed Tuesday in the capital Manila. Benjamin Ramos was a founding member of a legal organization providing pro bono services to poor people targeted by Duterte’s forces. Last year, Duterte told police that they could shoot lawyers investigating his drug war. Ramos is the 34th lawyer to be killed since Duterte became president two years ago.
