Cambodia: Police seek father who chained up son

A teenager who skipped school to play online games was chained by the neck to a power pole by his irate father.

Police say the boy's 40-year-old father fled the scene, in the north-western Battambang province about 180 miles north-west of Phnom Penh. The motorbike taxi driver is now wanted on child abuse charges.
