Another drug war casualty

Relatives of John Ryan Marquez stay beside his coffin at his wake in Malabon City on Friday. Marquez, 24, a drug user, had submitted himself to authorities after appearing on a drugs watch list last year. He was killed last weekend in what police said was a shootout during a sting operation involving undercover officers posing as buyers. 

The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on Thursday adopted a resolution that seeks a comprehensive report on the human rights situation in the Philippines.
