As anger simmers over killings, Philippine police do house-to-house drug testsBy Dondi Tawatao and Manuel Mogato MANILA (Reuters) - Philippine police were knocking on doors in one of Manila's poorest neighborhoods on Wednesday to encourage people to take on-the-spot drug tests, a campaign condemned by rights groups as harassment that could endanger lives. Carrying drug testing kits, police officers accompanied by community officials were seen by Reuters going to houses asking residents if they were willing to submit urine samples.
