PANABO CITY—Faced with continued criticism over the alleged summary execution of suspected drug personalities even in police operations, President Rodrigo Duterte said the media should cover antidrug raids “to see for yourself” that drug-crazed suspects indeed violently resisted arrest.

He said journalists should bring their cameras and “piggyback” on the antidrug raids.

He also continued to defend the police, saying “shabu” had shrunk the brains of users that their tendency was to just fight.
