, Index number: ASA 35/0156/2019

Amnesty International is alarmed at the killing of 14 people in Negros Oriental province, in southern Philippines, on 30 March. The victims, many of whom were identified by their families and by local groups as farmers and community leaders, were killed in three separate locations during police operations supposedly targeting “communist rebels” accused of illegal weapons possession. Several other people, including some known to be members of local political organizations, were arrested and detained in the operations.
