    Thousands of protesters marched in the Philippines to denounce President Rodrigo Duterte's state of the nation speech.

    They condemned his bloody campaign against illegal drugs and his friendly relations with China.

    But it was a different picture inside Congress, where a majority of politicians are allied with the administration.
