Conjoined twins born in Yemen need treatment abroad to survive

Conjoined twin boys born in Yemen are in urgent need of treatment abroad, but are unable to leave because the war there has closed the capital city’s airport.

Doctors treating two-week-old Abd al-Khaleq and Abd al-Rahim said Yemen’s war-ravaged health system cannot keep them alive, and the parents are poor.

The tiny boys, who are being helped to breathe in an incubator, have separate heads.

Within their shared torso they have separate spines, lungs, hearts and digestive systems, but they share a liver, reproductive organs and pair of kidneys, arms and legs between them.The doctors are appealing to the United Nations and international humanitarian organisations to arrange for the boys’ transfer abroad.
