(Flight MH370) Malaysian cops blundered on Iranian photos
(03-12 18:27)

Malaysian police dismissed claims today that they doctored photographs of two Iranians who boarded the Beijing-bound Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 using stolen passports – saying one man's legs were spliced over the other's in a photocopying error.
Police released photographs of the two men yesterday, but their lower limbs in the images were identical. Social media users suspect the images may have been intentionally doctored.
“Why did they try to photoshop the legs on the released photo of the Iranians?'' one user asked.
“Photoshop failed! same legs on those pics. are they for real??'' another posted.
But police spokeswoman Asmawati Ahmad said the odd appearance of the photos stemmed from a police staff member placing one on top of the other when photocopying them.
“It was not done with malice or to mislead,'' she told AFP.
She said this had been explained to some news photographers when the photos were handed out.
The error fuelled criticism of Malaysian authorities, who are accused of blundering and making contradictory statements since the Boeing 777 disappeared early Saturday.
