Li Lin and Li Juan, who first met at an Internet cafe in 2007, decided to sell their second child, a daughter, for 3,000 yuan (S$562). After spending their earnings, the couple sold their first child, a son, for 30,000 yuan. When their third son was born, the pair sold him once again for a similar price. They were soon caught when Li Lin's mother found out what they had done. Reports said that they did not want to raise their kids, but earn some money. The couple said they were unaware that they were breaking the law. Studies show that as many as 1 in 10 children may be video game addicts. -- THE KOREA HERALD/ANN
