Egyptian movie star Omar Sharif has been buried in Cairo.

A quiet funeral attended by family and several actors was held for the Egyptian-born actor who died of a heart attack in a Cairo hospital on Friday at the age of 83.

Mourners gathered for funeral prayers at the Hussein Tantawi Mosque in south Cairo and buried the star at the El Shafie Cemetery later Sunday.

In May this year, Tarek, Sharif's son revealed that his father had Alzheimer's disease.

Sharif soared to international stardom in two epics, "Lawrence of Arabia" and "Doctor Zhivago," the former of which earned him a supporting-actor Oscar nomination.
