Husband bites off wife's nose

A farmer in Nanjing of Jiangsu Province, who hid 20,000 yuan (US$2,400) in grain, did not expect the cash would get accidentally shredded.

And as reports last week, it will take about two years before there is the possibility of him getting assistance from the bank.

The farmer has been told by a local bank that he has to piece and paste the notes back together before he can even think about exchanging them.

It then took the man and his family two days to remove more than 62,000 pieces of shredded money, all the size of rice grain, from the grain.

After 17 days, only two notes each with a face value of 50 yuan (US$6) each have been restored.
