Adult Siamese twins plead for separation
Doctors in Singapore are considering whether to separate a pair of 28-year-old twin sisters who are joined at the head - an unprecedented operation for adults.
Neurosurgeon Keith Goh says he and his team will decide by the end of the year if an operation can be successful.
They went to Singapore after hearing about the successful surgery led by Dr Goh on baby twins from Nepal who were also joined at the head.

The twins say they want to be separated because of deep differences between them. "We are two completely separate individuals who are stuck to each other," Ladan, the more extrovert of the sisters, told reporters. "We have different lifestyles," she said. "We think very differently about issues." The twins said that if their situation continues for much longer, they will not "stand it any more".
