Share

According to ABS-CBN, Duterte said he wanted to personally question the police officer over why he had resorted to such actions to disperse the crowd.

"Yet PO3 Kho still recklessly drove in reverse and then forwards several times, toppling many unsuspecting protesters who, by that time, were still reeling from the effects of the tear gas that was just released moments before", she said. A woman was seen being flung into the air before slamming into the ground.

In a series of conflicting statements, Duterte has insulted U.S. President Barack Obama and the U.S. ambassador in Manila for questioning his war on drugs, which has led to the deaths of 2,300 suspected users and pushers.

Malayao said they are "very much ready" to relay to the President what transpired during the protest.

Rally-goers hurled red paint at the policemen and a US government seal at the seaside embassy, leading to the arrests of 23 protesters who had breached a police cordon.

He also stressed he does not want any police officers nor protesters hurt during such demonstrations, adding police officers should not carry firearms during protests.

At least three student activists were taken to hospital after being run over, protest leader Renato Reyes told AP.

The resolution said the action of the police officer driving the mobile, which was well documented by the media, was "clearly premeditated and not only aimed to maim the protestors but even to kill, as he showed no regard to the lives of the people mowed down by the police vehicle". "There is absolutely no justification for this".

A bloodied protester lies next to a passenger vehicle after he was injured in a dispersal outside the U.S. Embassy in Manila, Philippines Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016.

After breaking through the police cordon they scrawled "US troops out now" and other slogans on the embassy's towering fence with red paint.

At least 42 others were also arrested by the police, said the lawmakers.

"The dispersal happened as the rally was about to end", Mr. Reyes said.

"Even as the President avowed an independent foreign policy, Philippine police forces still act as running dogs of the U.S.".

Although he said the military alliance with Washington would continue, he has also said Manila is seeking military alliances with China and Russian Federation.

In a statement, the national police said they were investigating the violence at the demonstration, but they denied they were under orders to harm the protesters. "We should really treat this matter with civility". "I would like to know what really happened", Duterte said during a press conference upon his arrival at Davao International Airport (DIA) after his state visit at China.

"More than ever, we are determined to seek an end to United States impositions on the Philippines".
