Thousands of Singaporean's are bidding a final farewell to the country's first ever Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew as his funeral procession takes place in the city.
Mr Lee's coffin has been taken from parliament, where it had been lying in state, to be carried past significant landmarks including Singapore’s Old Parliament House, Marina Barrage, and St Andrew’s Cathedral on a gun carriage.
More than 1.2 million Singaporeans have formally paid their respects to Mr Lee - nearly half a million queued to file past his body lying in state at parliament house, while more than 850,000 attended community tribute sites around the island.
Several former and current world leaders, including Indian prime minister Narendra Modi, Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe and Bill Clinton, will be among mourners at the funeral service at the National University of Singapore.
A minute's silence will be held in Mr Lee's honour this afternoon. A private cremation will then take place at the Mandai crematorium.
