A FAMILY from China has been condemned for letting a boy under their care defecate on his seat on board a Delta Air Lines flight from Beijing to Detroit, reported China Press.

The boy, who was accompanied by his parents and grandparents, defecated on newspapers laid out on his seat.

Despite other passengers urging the family to take the boy to the toilet, the grandfather insisted that the boy be allowed to pass motion on the seat. A stewardess even spoke to the family but to no avail.

The incident sparked a furore among passengers and Chinese netizens, who took to the micro-blogging site Weibo to condemn the family.

They accused the family of being an embarrassment to the Chinese community.

The wife was preparing sahur meal at about 5.30pm on Sunday at their home when the husband asked her for permission. When she refused, they got into a quarrel and her husband hit her. A police report was subsequently lodged.

> Sin Chew Daily reported that bogus monks in China were milking temples of their donations and offering the funds as loans with high interest.

It was reported that the “monks” could take between 70,000 yuan and 80,000 yuan (RM35,000 and RM40,000) a month from smaller temples, and between 100,000 yuan and 200,000 yuan (RM50,000 and RM100,000) from larger institutions.

The illegal returns were said to be higher than the salaries of civil servants. The donations were mainly from worshippers and the sale of tickets to visit the temples.

Some of the “monks” were even alleged to be married with children and own property, including luxury cars.
