More than 1,000 residents queue up in a gymnasium after heeding a call from Tanauan city government to undergo processing allegedly for being drug-users Monday, July 18, 2016 at Tanauan city, Batangas province, south of Manila, Philippines. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said he plans to ask Chinese officials why some Chinese citizens who visit his country are involved in illegal drugs. The crime-fighting President, who has vowed to end crimes within six months of taking office on June 30, also said that he will not hesitate to grant pre-signed presidential pardons to law enforcers accused by human rights advocates of abusing their authority in cracking down on narcotics, as long as the soldiers and police involved tell the truth and do not fabricate evidence.
