Indonesian Siamese Twins With Three Legs In Stable Condition
Siamese twins born with three legs and three arms on the Indonesian resort island of Bali were in stable condition Friday, a health official said.

"It's a tough case, but so far they are stable," Wayan Sutarga, director of medical treatment at Sanglah Hospital in the Bali capital Denpasar, told DPA.

"We are still examining the babies, and we haven't decided to take any action yet," he said, adding that in medical terms the girls are thoraco abdominal Siamese twins.

The babies were born Thursday by caesarian section, weighing 3.75 kilograms. The babies have two heads, one heart, two lungs, three legs and three arms.
