Glitter charged with obscene acts

British glam rocker Gary Glitter was yesterday formally charged with committing "obscene acts with children" in Vietnam, a top prosecutor said.

Glitter was arrested last Saturday at Ho Chi Minh City airport as he tried to leave for Thailand after media reports said the performer was living with a 15-year-old girl. He has reportedly lived in the southern Vietnamese province since March.
