The po­lice van rammed into protesters, leav­ing sev­eral blood­ied, as an anti-Amer­i­can rally turned vi­o­lent. The protesters were de­mand­ing an end to the pres­ence of US troops in the Philip­pines and to sup­port a call by Pres­i­dent Ro­drigo Duterte for a for­eign pol­icy not de­pen­dent on the US, the coun­try's long-time ally.
