MANILA The Philippines' national police chief said on Tuesday that about 1,900 people had been killed during a crackdown on illegal drugs, which began seven weeks ago when President Rodrigo Duterte took power, but about 40 were not drug-related.
The number provided by Director-General Ronaldo dela Rosa at a Senate hearing was higher than the 1,800 deaths he gave at the hearing on Monday. He gave no explanation for the higher number but said the figures were updated.
