A Philippine mayor accused of involvement in narcotics trafficking was shot dead along with 14 other people in a police raid Sunday -- the latest official to die in President Rodrigo Duterte's war on drugs. Duterte has singled out local officials, policemen and judges as part of a crackdown that has made him popular with many Filipinos but has been condemned by human rights groups and other critics. Among those Duterte named was Reynaldo Parojinog, mayor of Ozamiz city on the southern island of Mindanao.
