Police denied deliberately running over some rallyists in an anti-American protest that turned violent in front of the United States (US) Embassy in Manila on Wednesday, stressing that the security forces were merely defending themselves from protesters attacking them.

“Hindi naman sila sinagasaan (They weren’t run over). The rallyists were trying to flip over the patrol car,” Chief Supt. Oscar Albayalde, National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief, said in a text message to INQUIRER.net.
