(Newser) – Two notable developments in the case of a Chinese teenager from an impoverished part of the country who sold his kidney to buy an iPhone and an iPad. First, five people have been charged, including the surgeon who did the operation last year and the person who arranged it, reports Reuters. (The kid got about $3,000, and the five adults charged split more than $30,000.) Second, the teenager is now suffering from renal failure.
