A father who tried to sell his son on the Internet after his wife asked to divorce him was arrested in Songzi, Hubei province.

The father surnamed Yuan, 25, asked for 100,000 yuan via an online chat room for his 2-year-old son. A netizen alerted police about Yuan, a farmer in Babao township.

He met his wife surnamed Yu of Sichuna province while he worked in Guangdong province in 2005. However, Yu wanted to get a divorce after she fell for another man late last year.
