British-born science fiction guru Arthur C. Clarke who died on Wednesday is likely to be buried at the main cemetery in Colombo at the weekend, an aide told AFP.

"The funeral is most likely to be on Saturday," Clarke's secretary Nalaka Gunawardena said. "We are awaiting the arrival of family members from Britain and Australia. They are already on the way."

Clarke, who shot to fame after writing "2001: A Space Odyssey," died at a hospital here at the age of 90. He had made Sri lanka his adopted home since 1956.
