Having a laugh in Ethiopia

An Ethiopian man has broken his own unofficial world record for laughing non-stop.

"Belachew thinks laughing is very therapeutic and in a country where 13 million people need food aid there is not always much to laugh about.

"We are living full of stress... Natural disasters, economical, political, social problems... My aim is to minimise this stress. Please let us communicate by smiling," he said.

"Our slogan is 'laughter, love, peace for all human beings'." "

Guffaw here.

Hear here.
