Mr Chandra Bahadur Dangi, 72, who claims to be the world's shortest man at 56cm tall, looks on as villagers measures him near his home in Reemkholi village, Dang district, some 540km southwest of Kathmandu. -- PHOTO: AFP KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) - A 72-year-old man from western Nepal is hoping to prove to Guinness World Records that he's the world's shortest man.
