Linus Escandor II

Onlookers cast shadows over the body of a man killed by unknown gunmen on San Francisco Street, Mandaluyong City, Philippines on October 25, 2016. The unidentified victim’s head is covered with black cloth and his hands are tied behind his back. Killings such as this one have become common under Rodrigo Duterte’s presidency. Human rights organizations have called for the International Criminal Court to investigate unlawful killings tied to the President’s anti-drug campaign.
