Trudeau airs concern on Philippine killings

Justin Trudeau tackled Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte over allegations of extrajudicial killings in Manila's deadly drug war, he said on Tuesday.

The Canadian prime minister's comments came the day after US President Donald Trump hailed the "great relationship" he enjoys with Duterte in a meeting the Philippines government said did not touch on human rights.

"I also mentioned human rights, the rule of law, and specifically extrajudicial killings as being an issue that Canada is concerned with," Trudeau told reporters in Manila, recounting a conversation with Duterte.
