Horrendous conditions of Filipino children in detention centres divulged by MailOnline investigation. A cynical drive to clean the streets of Manila for the Pope's visit.

MANILA, PHILIPPINES -- Homeless children with approximately 5 years of age are being 'brutally caged' in various detention centres along with the convicted adults (criminals) to make the PH capital become more pleasing in the eyes for the Pope's visit.

Police authorities roamed the streets for the past few weeks to round up hundreds of boys and girls from the roadsides and put them behind bars so that city areas pounded with poverty will be a more pleasant view at the arrival of Pope Francis today. This is according to the investigation of MailOnline.

This cynical approach by the authorities blatantly violated the laws protecting the children of the country. Children are terrified as they are locked up in dirty detention centres where they spend their nights sleeping on a concrete floors. Of note, most of them are getting abused by the adult prisoners.

In fact, a disturbing photo of a child whose hand was handcuffed to a post in one of the detention centres and left there crying.
