Maria Lourdes Sereno, the first woman chief justice of the Philippines who Duterte denounced as an "enemy" for her opposition to some of his proposals, was ousted by fellow-judges allied with the president last month. "Our sights have been set low by the very leaders who should lead us to pursue lofty visions for our nation and our people," Sereno said in a speech to her supporters after the court ruling.

Donald Trump defends 'zero-tolerance' immigration policy amid fury over separated children

Donald Trump defends 'zero-tolerance' immigration policy amid fury over separated childrenDonald Trump dug in his heels over a controversial "zero-tolerance" immigration policy that has seen thousands of children forcibly separated from their parents at the Mexican border. Mr Trump pointed to Europe, which he said had become a "migrant camp," and said that would not happen to the United States under his leadership. Speaking at the White House the US president said: "The United States will not be a migrant camp, and it will not be a refugee holding facility. You look at what's happening in Europe, and in other places, we cannot allow that to happen. Not on my watch." Mr Trump spoke amid an uproar among Democrats and Republicans as images of children being held in wire mesh cages, and toddlers crying as they were separated from their mothers, emerged from the border. The president said criminals were using children like a "Trojan horse" to get into America, that "a county without borders is not a country at all," and that people coming in were bringing "death and destruction".

He specifically mentioned Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, falsely suggesting "crime in Germany is way up" and immigration was why "the people of Germany are turning against their leadership". Mr Trump went on to attack Democrats in Congress, blaming them for the separation of families at the border because they had created "horrible laws" and had been "weak and ineffective". The "zero-tolerance" policy was introduced by Jeff Sessions, Mr Trump's attorney general, in April. It means all adults caught crossing the border illegally are detained and prosecuted, rather than being released while they
