South Korean police say they have arrested an online games addict who left his two-year-old son to die at home while he played in internet cafés for days on end.

The 22-year-old father is said to have then put the boy’s body in a bag and tried to dump it – but it was discovered.

Police said the child’s mother was not there as she stays at the factory where she works.
