South Africa prepares for Mandela memorial service
South Africa raced Monday to meet the unprecedented logistical challenge of hosting close to 100 world leaders flying in from every corner of the globe for the state funeral of freedom icon Nelson Mandela.
Rioters set fire to vehicles and clashed with police in the Indian district of Singapore, known as "'Little India'":http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/12/09/us-singapore-riot-idUSBRE9B802Y20131209, on Sunday, December 9. The violent outbreak followed the death of an Indian worker who was hit and killed by a bus reportedly driven by a Singaporean. The violence is the first outbreak of rioting in 40 years in the wealthy Asian state and has stoked tensions between migrant workers and the country's citizens.
