41cm-tall Nepalese man claims to be world's shortest person
KATHMANDU (AFP) - An elderly Nepalese man who is just 41cm tall is stepping up his campaign to be recognised as the world's shortest person.
Master Nau, 73, who is confined to a wheelchair, recently flew from his remote village southwest of the capital Kathmandu to press his request to be recognised in the Guinness World Records.
Wearing sunglasses and clutching his citizenship card, Mr Nau was greeted at Kathmandu airport by photographers and the media.
Now back home in Bhairahawa village, where he lives with his youngest brother's family, life has returned to normal.
