This photo taken on Wednesday July 7, 2010 shows the feet of Luis Siqueira Aforn, 65, who's toes were chewed by rats while he was sleeping on the ground in Hauana, East Timor, south of Oe-cusse town. The loss of sensation led him to be oblivious to the nibbling of the rodents. East Timor is one of just two places worldwide where leprosy is still widespread, and the country has now declared war on the age-old scourge. (AP Photo/Wong Maye-E)
