Philippines’ leader Duterte hurt in motorycle crash

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte hurt his hip and suffered scratches in a motorcycle accident, senior aides of the 74-year-old leader said yesterday. Duterte, whose health has been the subject of intense public speculation, suffered the mishap at the Malacanang presidential palace compound late Wednesday, according to spokesman Salvador Panelo. The crash came 10 days after Duterte -- the oldest person to be elected Philippine president -- disclosed he is suffering from myasthenia gravis, an autoimmune disease that could potentially have serious complications. A source said the president’s injury will not require major treatment. Duterte was trying to park the vehicle after driving around a courtyard Panelo said, adding the leader was now resting at the palace.
