Ever since Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte launched his controversial war on drugs corpses have been piling up in cities all over the country.
Illegal drug dealers and drug addicts are killed either by police or by unidentified gunmen. Their bodies are frequently found dumped on highways or in slum areas in pools of blood.
Reports show that many of them were found tied up with masking tape plastered across their faces, while some were draped with cardboard warning signs reading, "I'm a pusher. Don't Be Like Me."
Duterte won the May elections in a landslide victory on a vow to kill tens of thousands of criminals and to get rid of illegal drugs in the country in six months. He said that so many bodies would be dumped in Manila Bay that fish would grow fat from feeding on them and undoubtedly a similar scenario has been created.
The police claim that they have killed 1,105 drug suspects in slightly more than two months since Duterte came to power. They also said around 2,035 of those people have been murdered by unknown assailants while the rest were "deaths under investigation".
