Philippines bans US officials, mulls new visa rules for Americans


The Philippines has banned two United States officials from visiting the country and will introduce tighter entry restrictions for US citizens should Washington enforce sanctions over the detention of a top government critic, the president’s spokesman has said.

President Rodrigo Duterte will impose a requirement on US nationals to get visas should any Philippine officials involved in the incarceration of Senator Leila de Lima be denied entry to the US, as sought by US senators Richard Durbin and Patrick Leahy.
