Police Running Over Manila Protesters- Two different views-Warning Graphic

A police van rammed into a crowd of anti-American demonstrators Wednesday during a rally outside the U.S. Embassy in the Philippines.

At least three student activists were taken to hospital after being hit by the van.

The protest, which called for the removal of U.S. troops from the country, comes amid strained relations between Washington and Manila.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has in recent months called President Barack Obama a “son of a whore” and told him to “go to hell” while hinting he may scale down U.S. relations in favor of stronger ties with China.
