 Former 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, AFP reports.

Henry Kissinger, a former US secretary of state, will also be in the party sent by President Barack Obama, a White House statement said Wednesday.

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.
