SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Singaporeans were transfixed by news about the health of the country's first prime minister, Lee Kuan Yew, leaving flowers and tributes at the hospital where he is being treated, as the government said on Sunday his condition had weakened further.
The 91-year-old Lee, who is seen as the founding father of modern Singapore, which he led from 1959 until 1990, has been in hospital with severe pneumonia since Feb. 5.
