Two of the Philippines' most wanted men were recently arrested after being on the run since 2012, thanks to a tip-off from an informant.

The bounty for their capture was $90,000.

Brothers Joel and Mario Reyes - both former politicians - allegedly masterminded the murder of a journalist.

The Philippines is the only country outside the US that permits bounty hunting. Tracking down dangerous fugitives, bounty hunters pride themselves as informal law enforcers in a country where corrupt officials cover up crime.
