Hong Kong (AFP) - 08:59 GMT - Last goodbye - WE ARE CLOSING AFP'S LIVE REPORT following the end of Lee Kuan Yew's funeral. As the rain cleared in the late afternoon, Singaporeans still thronged the streets, singing the national anthem and hoping for a final glimpse of Lee's hearse as it made its final journey to the city's Mandai crematorium. "We love Mr Lee, he has shown a lot of support for the migrant community and champions our right to work hard here in Singapore," Kumar, an Indian citizen who has worked in Singapore for three years, told AFP's Amir Yusof. The state funeral officially ended after a recital of the National Pledge and the singing of the national anthem, Majulah Singapura -- Malay for "Onward Singapore".
