Image of Asia: Bowing in respect to late Singapore founder

In this photo by Wong Maye-E, a man bows to pay his respects to the late Lee Kuan Yew at a community club where members of the public can express their condolences in Singapore. Singaporeans wept over the death of the city-state's founding father on Monday, and the government declared seven days of national mourning with a state funeral on Sunday. Boards were set up at Parliament House and other locations and a website was created where people can leave condolence messages.
