A riot in Singapore's Little India district left more than 18 people injured on Sunday, and is calling into question the ethnic divisions in the island.
 
According to the Singapore Police Force, a 33-year-old Indian man was killed after he was hit by a private bus driven by a Singaporean man. In response to the incident, hundreds of migrant workers took to the streets and reportedly brawled with police officers.
