The Philippines has asked Singapore authorities to take action against a blog author who suggested Singaporeans should shove Filipinos on the street and be rude to Filipino workers.
Police said they are investigating, according to local media reports, but gave no other details.
The incident points to growing intolerance toward migrant workers, who have largely built the wealthy city-state's impressive skyline and transport infrastructure.
