TEHRAN — A 135-year-old man living in Saqqez, western province of Kordestan, is the oldest person living in Iran, the recent census has indicated.

Born on February 28, 1882, Ahmad Sufi is healthy and only suffers from hearing impairment which is pretty normal at this age, ISNA news agency reported.

Sufi has no children of his own but is a step father to his wife’s five children, the report added.

The census is being conducted every five years in Iran. The first nationwide census was held in 1956. The latest census began on September 24 and was carried out in two phases of web-based and door-to-door.
