World’s Shortest Man?

Nepal's Chandra Bahadur Dangi, 72, who says he's only 22 inches (56 centimeters) tall, looks at a copy of the Guinness World Record book at a guesthouse just hours before he was to be measured by officials, in Katmandu, Nepal, Sunday. Guinness World Records officials were set to measure Dangi who hopes to be named the world's shortest man Sunday. Dangi is hoping to snatch the title of the world's shortest man from Junrey Balawing of the Philippines, who is 23.5 inches (60 centimeters) tall. (AP Photo/Niranjan Shrestha)
