A teenager in China has caused an outcry after selling his kidney to buy an iPad2.

Xiao Zheng, 17, could not afford one of the new tablet-style computers that are seen as symbols of wealth in China.

But he answered an advert offering cash to healthy people willing to have one of their kidneys removed in a gruelling operation.

His action horrified his mother and has caused outrage in China.

The teenager told Shenzhen TV in the southern province of Guangdong: 'I wanted to buy an iPad2, but I didn't have the money.

'When I surfed the internet I found an advert posted online by an agent saying they were able to buy a kidney.'

Materialism out of control, but what concerns me most is where are this kids parents in this? If my kid pawned his kidney and he was under 18 I'd own whoever extracted it.
