Remembering Lee Kuan Yew

Singaporeans around the country pay tribute to founding father Lee Kuan Yew

SINGAPORE - Some cried. Others looked grimly ahead. Some came with friends and others came alone. Singaporeans - and non-Singaporeans - from all walks of life and across age groups paid tribute to Singapore's first prime minister Lee Kuan Yew across the island yesterday.

Many turned up at the Singapore General Hospital where he was warded and died, while more went to the Istana where his body was taken for a private wake on Monday March 23 and Tuesday.

Condolence boards have been set up outside the Istana and Parliament House, and 18 community sites have been designated for people to pay tribute.
