Firefighters are at the scene putting out the flames that had engulfed two vehicles, believed to be an SCDF ambulance and a police patrol car. There were at least four police patrol cars overturned along the road. One minibus - which appeared to have collided with a civilian vehicle - was further down Buffalo Road.
All the rioters appear to have dispersed but riot police could still be seen combing the area. The crowds who were earlier cheering the police, were still milling around at the time of this report.
Residents in the area described the scene as that of "havoc". One resident said he saw about 200 men at one point, surround the minibus that was involved in the accident.
