Little India Riots

Last weekend Singapore experienced a violent awakening late on the weekend. A man originally thought to be a Bangladeshi, but was in fact an Indian man, was hit by a private owned bus. Over the course of a few minutes the situation escalated into a full on riot, and the police were sent in. Cars were flipped and set on fire and several people were injured. The police later diffused the situation and the scene was cleaned up in the morning. This incident has sparked a Xenophobic outrage among some people, but the police have urged the public not to think on the subject; however, it is undeniable that the peace has been disturbed in Singapore for the first time in since 1969.
