Egyptian family seeks help for conjoined twins

The parents of conjoined twins in Egypt are calling for help to separate the girls, saying they have been unable to find treatment so far.

Fatma Yousry and Islam Hassan said their 10-month-old daughters Mai and Menna, who are joined at the head, are in poor health.

They are worried that the infants could die if they are not separated soon.

Mr Hassan, a farm hand who earns around 150 US dollars (£102) a month, said: "Every day I pray for God to save her, and that one day someone could separate them."

Ms Yousry said she has developed novel techniques for taking care of the sisters, such as always dressing them from the bottom up.
