Nearly 8 out of 10 adult Filipinos are worried that they, or someone they know, would fall victim to extrajudicial killing amid the ongoing anti-drug campaign of the Duterte administration, the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey showed.
A total of 78 per cent of 1,500 respondents asked in the nationwide SWS survey expressed worry that they or someone they know would be killed.
