Police stepped up security at a major international conference in Singapore after officers fatally shot one man and detained two others at a nearby roadblock.
The Shangri-La Dialogue security conference was uninterrupted but access to the venue was restricted.
The conference is a major event in the Asia-Pacific region attended by US defence secretary Ash Carter and delegates from dozens of countries from around the world.
Police said that officers opened fire after a vehicle with three people aboard crashed through police barricades.
Substances believed to be drugs were found on one of the two people detained, and the third man was shot dead, police said.
Security around the conference venue was increased and traffic rerouted. Police said they were in control of the situation.
Defence Secretary Michael Fallon addressed the event yesterday, while speakers today included China's deputy chief of general staff of the Chinese People's Liberation Army Sun Jianguo and Germany's defence minster Ursula van der Leyen.
