"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.
