It is a more dangerous title than "deposed gang leader".
The story I cut and paste from news.com.au is here:
THE world's oldest person, a Japanese woman on the southern island of Okinawa, has died a week before her 115th birthday, a spokeswoman said.
Kama Chinen, who witnessed three centuries, died on Sunday, according to Kaoru Shijima, a spokeswoman at her care facility.
Petite and grey-haired, Ms Chinen spent her final years at a care centre in Nanjo on southeastern Okinawa. She was born on May 10, 1895 according to the Gerontology Research Group , which tracks individuals of extremely old age.
Her family guarded her privacy closely, and details regarding her death were not released to the press - many Japanese newspapers didn't even give her name.
Ms Chinen became the world's oldest known person when Gertrude Baines died in a Los Angeles hospital at age 115 in September.
The oldest human is now 114-year-old Eugenie Blanchard, a French woman born on February 16, 1896, according to the research group. The group has validated 75 "supercentenarians" worldwide who are at least 110 years old, according to its website.
