    Breaking: Oldest Iranian Dies At 139

    Ahmad Soufi, who was believed to be the oldest man in Iran, died at age 139 on Wednesday in Saqqez, west of the country.

    Based on the 2016 census, Sufi was recognized as the oldest living Iranian man. He was 135 years old at the time of the census, according to his birth certificate.

    “An ongoing national census in Iran has registered a 135-year-old as the oldest Iranian man and the second oldest one in the world,” Iran’s English Channel, Press TV, reported in November 2016.

    However, Radio Farda cannot independently verify this claim.

    According to Iranian news media, Soufi, born in February 1882, lived in the Ahangaran Square neighborhood of Saqqez since 1996 and never had biological children. Mr. Soufi married a woman in Saqqez in 1996 who had five children, whom Soufi adopted. Soufi allegedly had about one hundred step-grandchildren at the time of his death.

    According to his birth certificate, if Sufi had survived until February 27, he would have celebrated his 140th birthday.

    The oldest Iranian woman, 126-year-old Goli Papi, died two years ago.
