PM attends state funeral service for Lee Kuan Yew

Prime Minister Thongsing Thammavong and his delegation on Sunday attended a ceremony of mourning and state funeral service in Singapore for the country's founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew.

Upon their arrival at Singapore Changi Airport, Prime Minister Thongsing was welcomed by Lao Ambassador to Singapore Ms Viengsavanh Sipraseuth and Singaporean government officials.

According to The Straits Times , more than 100,000 people lined the streets along the state funeral procession route on Sunday to bid farewell to the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, who was much more than the first Prime Minister of Singapore. He is widely recognised across the world as the founding father of the modern city-state of Singapore.

About 2,200 guests, including members of the late Mr Lee's family, the President of Singapore, cabinet members, foreign leaders, and invited Singaporeans from all walks of life attended the state funeral service.
