'130-year-old' Kazak sings a song


A woman whose documents indicate she is 130 years old is the newly found treasure of Kazakhstan - after a census made her age public knowledge.

A Soviet passport issued in the early 1980s states that Sohan Dosova was born in the Karaganda region on 27 March 1879.

The BBC World Service's Outlook programme went to meet her - and found her in fine voice despite her age.
