    Already born myopic, teen’s eyes get severely deformed after mobile gaming addiction

    When your parents tell you that video games will spoil your eyes, you should probably know that science can back up their claims. 

    A teen in China had his eyeballs severely deformed thanks to a potent combination of congenital myopia and a serious addiction to mobile games. 

    Oriental Daily reported that the 15-year-old boy from Guangdong Province was already born with congenital myopia, an affliction that develops in infants and causes nearsightedness.

    Due to the obstruction along the visual pathway, the eye becomes elongated in response, resulting in distance blur. 

    Though its effects could have been slowed down early on, the boy’s family mentioned that he was not willing to wear glasses as he was afraid of being teased by his classmates.

    Quran teacher in Indonesia allegedly molests 7 elementary school girls

    A Quran teacher, identified only as AI in Jatinegara, East Jakarta, is suspected of molesting seven elementary school girls.

    He allegedly offered his victims money for them not to resist nor divulge his deeds.

    The abuse, however, was revealed after one of the victims’ mothers was suspicious of changes in her daughter’s body condition. The mother examined her child, who felt pain while urinating, and revealed that she had been molested.

    “The mother asked her if she was sick and the child revealed that she had been molested by AI, who was a Quran teacher,” said Bambang Purwanto, 55, a member of a nearby community unit service, on Saturday, as quoted by kompas.com.

    Bambang said that after finding out what had happened, the girl’s mother did not immediately report to the police but went to a number of her daughter’s friends and found out that there were others who had allegedly also been molested by the same person.

    “The girl’s mother found out that apparently there were six other victims from three different community units, the majority of whom were under 11 years old, who claimed to have been molested by AI since July,” Bambang said.

    Chinese man charged with stabbing protester in Hong Kong

    A mainland Chinese man was on Monday charged with stabbing a 19-year-old student who was handing out anti-government protest leaflets in northern Hong Kong over the weekend, as the teenager remained in a serious condition in hospital.

    The 22-year-old suspect – whose permission to stay in the city, the Post has learned, had expired on Friday – was charged with one count of wounding with intent. The case was scheduled for mention at Fanling Magistrates’ Courts on Monday afternoon, police said.

    The victim, a Form Six student surnamed Hung, was distributing leaflets near a so-called “Lennon Wall” – a public mural of pro-protest messages and artwork – in an underpass outside Tai Po Market MTR station on Saturday when he was attacked with a knife in the neck and stomach.

    He was sent to Prince of Wales Hospital, and was in a serious condition as of 10am on Monday, according to the Hospital Authority.

    The alleged attacker turned himself in to police late on Saturday.
