There has been public outcry in Singapore over the death of actor Aloysius Pang, from injuries he sustained in a military training exercise in New Zealand. The 28-year-old was a rising star in Singapore, and his is one of several high profile military deaths in the last eighteen months. He was seriously injured while repairing an artillery gun at the Waioru Training Area on Saturday, and died at Waikato Hospital in the early hours of Thursday morning.
