Oldest Swede is 112

Sweden’s oldest citizen is celebrating her 112th birthday today.

Astrid Zachrison was born in 1895 near the town of Oskarshamn in southern Sweden and has one son.

She says despite having lost almost all her hearing this year and having poor eye-sight, she’ll be marking the day with a low-key party with coffee and cakes with her friends at the residential care she lives in.
