Indonesians seek cure from 'track therapy'

People suffering from illnesses in Indonesia's capital Jakarta have started treating themselves with a highly unusual - and potentially deadly - form of 'therapy'.

They claim that lying on train tracks allows an electric flow to pass through their bodies, curing their ailments.

But the authorities have repeatedly urged them not to do it, warning them of the risks.
