China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Sin­ga­pore filed charges on Tues­day against 24 In­dian na­tion­als who al­legedly took part in its first riot in more than 40 years, as of­fi­cials and ac­tivists warned against in­cit­ing racial ha­tred over the in­ci­dent. The men face up to seven years in jail plus can­ing for the hour­long fra­cas on Sun­day night that was trig­gered by the death of an In­dian con­struc­tion worker who was struck by a pri­vate bus in a dis­trict known as Lit­tle In­dia.
