Conjoined twins separated, recovering after long surgery
Conjoined Egyptian twin boys were successfully separated in Saudi Arabi in Saturday and are expected to lead fully normal lives, officials said.
The surgery took about 15 hours. Separating the boys' urinary system was a major challenge, Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah, the Saudi minister of health, said to CNN. They are in stable condition.
The surgeries are performed free as part of King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz's philanthropic initiative.
