South African Baby Born With Four Legs Dies After Surgery
A baby girl who was born earlier this month with four legs in South Africa has died following an operation to amputate two of her limbs, a health official said on Monday.

The girl, who was born near the northeastern town of Polokwane, died late last week "following complications in her stomach after the operation," provincial health department spokesman Phuti Seloba told AFP.

Health officials had expressed confidence ahead of the operation that the youngster "can pull through".
