(Washington Post) You know things have gotten pretty desperate when the “witch doctors” arrive to lend a hand.

Which is exactly what happened Wednesday afternoon in the international quest to find missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370.

A portly “bomoh” — shaman — who calls himself the “Raja Bomoh Sedunia Nujum VIP” arrived at the Kuala Lumpur airport yesterday clutching a bevy of talismans: vases, fiddles, and coconuts. The VIP Bomoh claimed he’d been dispatched by Malaysian authorities to summon the location of the missing jetliner from the ether. (No success yet.)
