WARNING - GRAPHIC CONTENT: The death toll in the Philippines continues to rise as president Rodrigo Duterte, known as 'The Punisher', claims he will slaughter drug dealers and addicts in his war on drugs. The bombastic president has also sensationally disparaged the country's alliance with the US ordering its troops to leave his shores. The potential ending of an alliance comes as a reaction to the international outrage of the slaughter of drug criminals at the hands of vigilantes and police in the Philippines. The fear tactic has seen Duterte's popularity sky-rocket, with a Social Weather Stations Survey showed 8/10 Filipino residents are satisfied with his campaign promise to crack down on drug dealers and users.

Ed Miliband, who is leading the demands, says Parliament must not be overlooked because of 'the importance of these decisions for the UK economy'.

ED BALLS shares his Strictly Come Dancing diary with The Mail On Sunday: They say fancy footwork is a good thing in Westminster and Strictly Come Dancing has long been a favourite in the Balls-Cooper household. But when I was approached by the BBC to take part back in May, I was cautious. People like me just don't do things like that and, when I talked to my wife Yvette, I thought she'd tell me not to risk making a fool of myself. 'You have to do it,' she said instantly. 'How could you possibly pass up the opportunity to learn to dance on the biggest TV show there is?' I turned to Jeremy Vine, a Strictly veteran, and when he said it was the best experience he'd ever had, my mind was made up.

A home fit for a Prince! Fans descend on late singer's famed Paisley Park as his secretive studio complex opens to the public as a museum
Music fans around the world and Minnesota residents have long wondered about Paisley Park, the late pop icon Prince's mysterious studio complex to which few have had full access. On Thursday, the mystery came to an end for some fans who snared tour tickets and descended on the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen to see inside the late Purple Rain star's 55,000-square-foot inner sanctum. The complex opened in 1987, and was a fully functional recording studio used by a number of artists during its peak in the 1990s. While some parts of Paisley Park were now outfitted to exhibit memorabilia, other areas -- such as his working studio -- have been left untouched since the singer's death, tour attendees said. Rooms in the studio complex were themed according to Prince's albums, like Graffiti Bridge or Purple Rain. The superstar's vast collection of distinctive costumes, pianos and guitars from each time period were on display throughout.

An underground palace of ice: Amazing pictures show full majesty of giant cave in Austria only discovered a hundred years ago
