President Duterte dared United Nations (UN) experts to come to the Philippines and face him in a public meeting where he would answer all their questions on drug-related extrajudicial killings. Two UN human rights experts urged the Philippine government to stop the unlawful killings of people suspected of drug-related crimes, as the number of suspects killed during police operations climbed to over 850 between May 10 and August 11, this year, 650 of them killed in the last six weeks alone.
