5:48 pm on 10 January 2012

A young couple in Samoa has told a local television they want to sell their three months old baby for less than 10 US dollars.

The move has prompted police to look into the matter.

The couple appeared on the television with their baby boy, with the father saying he would like to sell the baby for money.

He claims that he would like another mother to feed his son as his wife is often away.

Our correspondent says that according to some of her family, she suffers from mental problems.
