ReutersBy Manuel Mogato MANILA (Reuters) - The head of the Philippines' anti-narcotics agency on Friday warned of a reduced intensity in the country's war on drugs after a removal of police from the campaign, which he hoped would only be temporary as his unit lacked manpower. Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) chief Aaron Aquino said he had only a fraction of the personnel and budget of police, and hoped President Rodrigo Duterte's decision to make his agency responsible for all operations would not be lasting. "I hope this is just a temporary arrangement, we need the police." Amid unprecedented scrutiny of police conduct, the mercurial Duterte issued a memorandum on Tuesday ordering police to withdraw.
