The first six community sites around Singapore for members of the public to pay tribute to former prime minister Lee Kuan Yew will be up by today from 10am, said the People's Association.

They are located at: Tanjong Pagar Community Club; Ang Mo Kio Central Stage at the town centre; the open space at Bedok town centre; the hardcourt opposite Choa Chu Kang MRT Station; the Canopy @J Link (next to JCube and Jurong Regional Library); and Tampines Community Plaza (in front of Tampines One Mall).

Another 12 community sites will be up by 10am tomorrow. They include Hong Lim Park; Kovan Hub; the open area at Block 442 and Block 449, Clementi Avenue 3; and Woodlands Civic Centre.

All the sites will operate daily from 10am to 8pm until Sunday, when the state funeral will be held.

PA will telecast the state funeral for residents at the 18 community sites.
