SINGAPORE -- A bitter -- and highly public -- feud is raging between the children of Singapore's founding father, Lee Kuan Yew, with the late leader's two youngest children accusing their older brother, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, of abusing his position, among other claims.

Fueling the rift is a disagreement over the fate of their father's home.
