Angry protesters tried to storm parliament in Taiwan as the island's leader Ma Ying-jeou left for a historic summit in Singapore with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The meeting will be the first between leaders of the two sides since their 1949 split following a civil war won by the Chinese Communists.

Xi and Ma will shake hands at a luxury hotel in Singapore around 3pm before holding talks behind closed doors for an hour.

It is a deeply symbolic seal on a dramatic seven-year rapprochement under Ma following decades of hostility, but has provoked a backlash in Taiwan.
