SUBTITLED ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte railed against the United Nations on Sunday after it called for an end to the wave of killings unleashed by his war on drugs, saying he might leave the organisation and invite China and others to form a new one. Two U.N. human rights experts last week urged Manila to stop the extra-judicial killings that have escalated since Duterte won the presidency on a promise to wipe out drugs. "What have you done for the world, Mr United Nations and your expert..... I do not want to insult you. But maybe we'll just have to decide to separate from the United Nations.

About 900 suspected drug traffickers have been killed since he came to power after winning the election on May 9.
