Conjoined twins go through separation surgery, with no ill effects
« on: September 18, 2011, 12:54:23 PM »
Conjoined twins Rital and Ritag Gaboura, who were born in the Sudan, underwent four operations to separate their bodies. The process, carried out in a hospital in England, appears to have been a thorough success.

They do not appear to have suffered neurological side effects. Only one in 10 million sufferers survive their rare condition.

The Sudanese infants were flown to the UK by the charity Facing the World.
