The National Bureau of Investigation announced it would probe the murder of the boy, who politicians and rights groups said appeared to be the third teenager murdered as part of Duterte’s drug war in the past month.

Filipinos have mostly backed Duterte’s drug war even as critics warned the thousands of people killed in the crackdown may amount to a crime against humanity. But the deaths of the three boys have triggered rare street protests and highlighted concerns about alleged police abuse.

“Under President Duterte’s bloody war on drugs, there is a pattern of killing young and poor people, particularly innocent minors. There is a policy to kill,” opposition Senator Risa Hontiveros said as she voiced outrage at the death of Reynaldo de Guzman.
