The oldest woman in the north has died at the age of 106, Turkish Cypriot media reported on Thursday.
Melek Oylum, whose husband died 30 years ago, lived alone in the village of Kornokipos, in the Famagusta district.
In an interview a few months ago, the mother of six said she had never taken any medicine until recently and that she did not smoke or drink alcohol.
Oylum said she ate wild plants she collected herself, and meat from animals she reared.
She also ate a teaspoon of honey morning and night.
