Dr. Ashraf Marwan, an Egyptian businessman identified as the Mossad agent who tipped Israel off on the eve of the Yom Kippur War, was buried Sunday night in Cairo. Marwan was found dead outside his home in London's Mayfair neighborhood on Wednesday, after apparently falling from his balcony. The death is being treated as unexplained at present. Hundreds attended the funeral, which took place in a mosque next to the Presidential Palace, including Egyptian President Hosni Mubrak's son Gamal and several top government officials.
