Philippine police kill Reynaldo Parojinog and wife, mayor of a town,linked to drugs, in drug raid

President Rodrigo Duterte means business in his quest to wipe out drug dealers in the Philippians.
Aljazeera  reports Phillippine police have killed a city mayor, his wife and 10 others during a series of pre-dawn anti-drug raids in the south, officials said.

Reynaldo Parojinog, mayor of Ozamiz city, is the latest official to be killed since President Rodrigo Duterte launched a drug war.

Officers were to serve warrants for the arrest of Parojinog, his daughter, and four other officials of Ozamiz city when they allegedly opened fire on Sunday.

The officers were "met with volleys of fire from [the mayor's] security, prompting the Philippine National Police personnel to retaliate," Chief Superintendent Timoteo Pacleb said in a statement.
