A zoo in Sweden said on Saturday that it had become the first in Scandinavia to succcessfully deliver a baby gorilla.

"Both mother and baby are doing well," Magnus Nilsson, spokesman for the Kolmården Animal Park in Norrköping, told AFP.

The public should be allowed to see the baby, born early Saturday, when the zoo opens for the summer on May 6th, Nilsson added.

It was too early to determine the baby's gender.

Between five and 10 gorillas are born in captivity throughout the world annually, the zoo said.
