Washington: 

Former US President Bill Clinton will lead a delegation from the United States to the state funeral of Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore's founding leader who died at age 91 on Monday.

Henry Kissinger, a former US Secretary of State, will also be in the party sent by President Barack Obama, a White House statement said yesterday.

Lee, who oversaw the city-state's transformation from a poor British colonial outpost into one of the world's richest societies, will be cremated on Sunday after a state funeral expected to be attended by several Asia-Pacific leaders and other world figures.
