Teen chops off dad's hands

TAIPEI - A TAIWANESE teenager has been arrested after chopping off his father's hands, allegedly to avenge years of physical abuse, a report said on Tuesday.

The victim, identified only by his surname Fan, was in critical condition at a hospital in central Taiwan's Miaoli county after his son hacked at his wrists more than ten times while he slept early on Monday, the Apple Daily said.

The 17-year-old showed no remorse, saying he could not care less if his father survived the attack, according to the report.

'I don't feel a thing if he's going to die. It's like killing a chicken or a duck. I wanted to take him out two years ago,' he was quoted by the paper as saying.

According to the report, 37-year-old Fan, who was divorced, regularly yelled at his son and beat him. -- AFP
