"I believe in retribution. Why? You should pay. When you kill someone, rape, you should die," incoming Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte saidIncoming Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte on Monday hit out at "stupid" human rights campaigners, as he defended his imminent war on crime and emphasised the death penalty was for retribution.

Labour leader defiant after 12 of his team withdraw support

By Kylie MacLellan and William James LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's opposition Labour leader said on Sunday he would not resign despite more than a third of his senior team withdrawing their support for him, plunging the party into crisis in the wake of Britain's vote to leave the European Union. Corbyn, elected last year with the overwhelming support from grassroots Labour members, has faced criticism from some Labour lawmakers that he had not done enough to convince millions of voters in the party's heartlands to back remaining in the EU. "Those who want to change Labour's leadership will have to stand in a democratic election, in which I will be a candidate."
