Cairo: Egypt's former president Hosni Mubarak had died of chronic kidney and heart problems, a leaked copy of his burial permit showed on Wednesday.

Mubarak, who governed Egypt for nearly 30 years until 2011, died on Tuesday in a military hospital in Cairo at the age of 91.

Mubarak will be buried later Wednesday after a military funeral that follows a Muslim death prayer in the Field Marshal Tantawi Mosque in the Cairo suburb of the Fifth Tajamuh.
