Twin sisters

The conjoined twins should live stuck together for at least a year before they can live two separate lives.

In Shiraz, twin girls who share aortas, hearts and livers have been born. Doctors say the conjoined newborns are likely to undergo surgery to have their hearts separated when they turn three months. Their livers could be disjoined when they become one year old.

The following are the photos Tasnim News Agency released of the conjoined twins on December 20:
