BEIJING (Reuters) – Five people in southern China have been charged with intentional injury in the case of “Wang,” a 17-year-old Chinese teenager who sold a kidney in April 2011 so he could buy an iPhone and an iPad, the government-run Xinhua News Agency said on Friday. Wang now suffers from renal deficiency.

According to the Xinhua account, one of the defendants received about 220,000 yuan (about $35,000 USD) to arrange the transplant. He paid Wang 22,000 yuan and split the rest with the surgeon, the three other defendants and other medical staff.
