Lee Kuan Yew Singapore state funeral: LIVE REPORT
Hong Kong (AFP) - 05:39 GMT - Housing and education - The procession route has been carefully planned to take in landmarks considered emblematic of Lee's social achievements, including public housing estates -- 90.3 percent of Singaporeans own their own homes under a programme started by Lee, who believed home ownership gave citizens a stake in their country. It also passed by Singapore Polytechnic, a nod to the founding leader's emphasis on education as vital to the city-state's future. 05:26 GMT - Tough leader - The procession has passed by the headquarters of Singapore's Corrupt Practices Investigation bureau -- a symbol of the former prime minister's tough stance against graft. Lee, who held office for 31 years, was an authoritarian and controversial leader, but is widely revered for having transformed Singapore from a British colonial outpost into one of Asia's wealthiest societies in his three decades in power.

The former partner also alleged that Gordon had failed to pay child support.
"Throughout my life I have had to overcome many challenges and adversities. In particular as a young indigenous boy," he wrote.
"One of the things that I do remember wishing for the most, even into my years as a teenager, was for a perfect father figure, especially since as a young man I also had serious contact with the criminal justice system."
