President Rodrigo Duterte canceled Tuesday his visit to the wake of the nine sugarcane farmers murdered by unidentified armed men in a plantation in Sagay City, Negros Occidental.

Duterte was scheduled to visit the farmers’ wake at 12:30 p.m. before proceeding to Naga City in Camarines Sur to visit the wounded and killed policemen there.
