Celebrations for a wedding with a difference. Yes, in Iraq a 92-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman have wed. Muslai Mohammed, from a village north of Baghdad, decided to get married three years after the death of his first wife who died aged 58.

"I remained alone when my wife died. there was nobody to share anything with. I wanted to have a good time, have some pleasure, but there was nothing. Then God brought her to me."

His young wife Muna seems happy with the situation, too.

"I accepted the marriage when I saw his pictures and realised that this was my fate. I'm very happy and satisfied."

Mr. Mohammed had 18 children with his first late wife and has a family of some 325 members. 

Difficult words: wed (get married), late (dead).
