Little India Singapore Riot.
On the night of December 8, 2013, whilst the rest of Singapore was busy shopping for Christmas, a riot was happening at our backyard.
I was there after the initial clashes and took this video with my iPhone.
Spoke to 3 South Indian Foreign Workers and gathered this unverified account of what had happened... A lady bus driver pushed a South Indian man out of her bus. The person was run over by the bus. A Civil Defence ambulance took 1 hour to arrive which made the people very angry. Singapore Police cars started arriving. The Ambulance personnel were attacked by the gathering mob and had to run for their lives. The police were attacked by the rioters and had their cars turned. The ambulance & 2 police cars were set on fire. Special Operations Command arrived and brought the situation under control.
From other YouTube videos, I see people cheering as the ambulance was set on fire. This is very disturbing.
