Singapore shares fell on Monday along with the region as investors were spooked by a possible slowdown in China's economic growth.

The benchmark Straits Times Index (STI) shed 7.65 points or 0.24 per cent to 3,123.82.

The index had been on a roll coming into this year, but had tumbled 43.18 points last Friday to snap a nine-session winning streak.

The recent blip has come amid a breather on Wall Street and some concerns over China, the world's second-largest economy.
