Playwright Harold Pinter buried in London

Nobel Prize-winning playwright Harold Pinter has been buried in a London ceremony at a brief private funeral attended by family and friends.
About 50 people stood beneath a tree at Kensal Green Cemetery on Wednesday for the service on a cold, grey afternoon.
Pinter died on Christmas Eve after a protracted battle with cancer.
The outspoken playwright had left instructions for the service, which included a reading from one of his plays by the actor Michael Gambon, a close friend.
The gravely ill Pinter had asked Gambon to read from "No Man's Land" three months ago.
Pinter's wife, the writer Lady Antonia Fraser, was present along with playwright Tom Stoppard and other luminaries.
