President of the Philippines orders people to be shot if protests continue

In a televised address the Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte has announced that he ordered the police, military and officials of villages to shoot citizens dead if "there's violence and your lives are in danger". This order follows the protests against the lack of supplies since the lockdown started two weeks ago. Protestors argue that they haven't received any food packages, while the government refutes these claims.
