• Snake-conjuring Chinese ‘healer’ held for murder


    BEIJING: A celebrity Chinese “qigong master” who claimed to conjure snakes from thin air and cure the sick has been held by police on suspicion of kidnapping and murder, reports said Friday. Wang Lin, who gained fame and political admirers through his performance of qigong, a spiritual martial art, was detained Thursday over the death of businessman Zou Yong, the official Xinhua news agency and other reports said. He gained fame in China two years ago, when images of his feats were posted online, along with pictures of him posing with celebrities.
