Frenchman recognizes his amputated leg

A man claims a photo of his amputated leg has been used as a warning on a cigarette packet without his permission - despite the fact he lost his leg in a shooting.

His son discovered the picture - which bore recognisable burns and scars - when he bought a packet of rolling tobacco a year ago in Luxembourg, French media report.

The man looked at the picture that accompanied the warning, "smoking clogs your arteries", and was shocked to realize that it was his father, recognizing distinct scarring and burns.

He discovered the picture when his son bought a packet of tobacco previous year in Luxembourg.

He lost his leg in a shooting incident in Albania in 1997 and believes the photo was taken at a hospital while he was being assessed.

The image was taken during a visit to the local hospital to find out if he could be fitted with a prosthetic leg.
