Spanish police shoot dead possible Barcelona attack fugitive
Spanish police on Monday shot dead a man who could be Younes Abouyaaqoub, the suspected driver of a van that mowed down pedestrians in Barcelona, amid a massive manhunt for the Moroccan national described as dangerous and likely armed. Regional police confirmed a man wearing what appeared to be a suicide belt had been killed in Subirats, a village about 60 kilometres (37 miles) away from Barcelona, without identifying the individual. Earlier Monday, police had launched an appeal for information about the 22-year-old fugitive, believed to be the last remaining member of a 12-man cell suspected of plotting last week's deadly attacks.

Catholic leaders call for an end to Duterte's bloody drug war in the Philippines
The head of the powerful Catholic Church in the Philippines has called for an end to the ?waste of human lives? after one of the bloodiest weeks in President Rodrigo Duterte?s drugs war, in which a 17 year-old schoolboy was among dozens brutally killed. At least 76 people were shot dead last week during police raids named ?One Time Big Time?. Public anger rose when police killed Kian Delos Santos, 17, and initially claimed he had fired first.

Even by the standards of a violent, state-fuelled war on drugs that has killed more than 12,500 since Duterte took power last June, lawmakers called the latest operation an alarming ?killing spree? and plan to summon the police to the senate this week. Influential church leaders, who have increasingly been speaking out against the targeting of alleged small-time drugs users and dealers, added their voices to the protests. ?We knock on the consciences of those who kill even the helpless, especially those who cover their faces with bonnets, to stop wasting human lives,? said Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, archbishop of the capital city, Manila. ?The illegal drug problem should not be reduced to a political or criminal issue. It is a humanitarian concern that affects all of us,? he added, calling for nine days of prayer for the victims. Another senior cleric, Archbishop Socrates Villegas, called for churches to ring their bells every evening at 8pm to stir the consciences of the authorities. ?You shall not kill. That is a sin. That is against the law,? he said in a statement. The Catholic Church has been a central figure during political upheaval in the Philippines including the 1986 ?people power? revolution that overthrew dictator Ferdinand Marcos. While it initially refrained from criticising Duterte?s drugs war, it began to campaign last year after the death toll of mainly poor people mounted, offering shelter to witnesses, and support for families of the victims. Of the estimated 12,500 victims, about 3,500 have been shot by the police, in what they claim was self-defence. Most others were killed by vigilante assassins suspected of having links to the authorities.
