Egyptian Family Seeks Help for Conjoined Twins

SADAT CITY, Egypt (AP) — 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.

Mother Fatma Yousry and father Islam Hassan say their 10-month-old daughters Mai and Menna, who are joined at the head, are in poor health. They are worried that if the infants aren't separated soon, both could die.

Hassan, a farm hand who earns around $150 a month, says: "Every day I pray for god to save her, and that one day someone could separate them."

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