Photos showing hundreds of prisoners in a Philippine jail sitting naked while being searched for contraband have triggered accusations of further rights abuses in President Rodrigo Duterte’s deadly war on drugs.
Philippine authorities said on Thursday they had captured 34 inmates who escaped in the nation’s biggest jailbreak but more than 110 remained on the run in vast farmlands and isolated villages of the nation’s strife-torn south.
No places could be more far away from each other, ideally and materially. On the one side, the nice high-class cultural venue of the 11th Rome Film Festival with its red carpet. On the other, in a shabby northeast suburb, the Rebibbia prison: over 350 inmates, high walls, and a maximum-security ward.
