Duterte Says He Killed Someone as a Teen Over a Look

"We want [Trump] to know that the students and the youth here shall not allow imperialist power to plunder and continually kill our people", the group's chairperson Kristine Cabardo told Philippines newspaper SunStar.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has said that he stabbed a person to death as a teenager, in a defiant speech to promote his drug war ahead of a summit of world leaders in Manila.

Since the start of Mr Duterte's clampdown, Philippine police have reported killing more than 3,900 "drug personalities" and claim that another 2,290 died in unsolved "drug-related" killings.

The Filipino president has faced severe criticism for endorsing extrajudicial mass killings, imprisoning his critics and threatening to kill whoever raised their voice against his government.

Hundreds of protesters took to the streets across the Philippines yesterday and today to rally against US President Donald Trump's upcoming visit to the nation, calling upon President Rodrigo Duterte to resist US influence in Philippine foreign policy. "A person, really", he alleged. "Stabbing. That was when I was 16 years old, just because we just looked at each other". "Many countries have the problem [with drugs], we have a problem, but what a great job you are doing and I just wanted to call and tell you that", Trump said in the transcript. So again, I thank you very much, the Russian people, and you, Mr. President.

The 72-year-old President's latest comments came as he offered to host a "world summit" to explore how nations can protect human rights. "Never mind about the human rights advocates".

He told the crowd: "I will slap her in front of you. Why?"

"By saying that I will destroy you or kill you, that is not a conspiracy". Because you yourself do not believe in the research of your own organization. "Why are you so fascinated with drugs?"

The Philippines president was adversarial towards Mr Trump's predecessor Barack Obama, labelling him a "son of a whore."

Duterte's claim was made during remarks to Filipinos living in Vietnam on Thursday. "I take care of my country and I will nurture my country to health". The meeting was very brief during the APEC family photo call.

"If you do not like me, I do not like you".

"We are looking at helicopters, small arms and equipment for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations, but we are still discussing the specifics", said the same military official who declined to be named because he was not authorized to talk to the press. "And I'm happy to have received them for my country", he added.
