A rally protesting the presence of American troops in the Philippines has turned violent outside the US embassy in Manila, with police using tear gas against demonstrators. Reports claim that at least three people were run over by a police truck.
An image posted on social media showed protesters gathered outside the embassy, with reports saying they tried to seize the building.
The demonstrators are reportedly national minorities, who are pushing for an independent foreign policy for the Philippines.
One image showed the protesters holding a sign which said “No to US bases & troops.”
