Duterte: If my plane explodes, you can ask the CIA

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has launched a fresh expletive-filled tirade against the United States, accusing one of the country's closest allies of lacking "word of honour", while suggesting that the CIA is out to get him.

In a speech in Manila on Thursday, Duterte lashed out at the US government for halting the planned sale of firearms to the Philippines because of human rights concerns.

"At least, if ever my airplane explodes, or if some roadside bomb explodes, maybe you can ask the CIA," Duterte told a group of farmers and fishermen gathered at the Malacanang presidential palace.

It was not the first time the Philippine president accused the CIA of plotting against him.
