Going strong at 110

DHAKA (AFP) - A 110-year-old Bangladeshi man, who heads a clan of more than 500, is ready to marry his 14th wife. 'I can take another wife, and parents will happily give me their daughter, despite my age, because I have lots of property,' said Rajab Ali Sarker. He has 58 children so far, the youngest in secondary school.
