SINGAPORE shares rebounded after opening lower on Friday morning, cheered by the rise in China's major stock indexes and regional markets as China deactivated a circuit-breaker mechanism that has been seen by some as aggravating anxiety.

The index rose 15.26 points to 2,745.17 as at 10.22am. Some of the most active stocks that gained include Ezra Holdings and Keppel Corporation, both of which have been slipping in recent trading sessions.
