Conjoined twins who were attached at the navel and amazed doctors after they were born naturally have been successfully separated.

The one-week-old babies – called Anick and Destin – were born in a remote village in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

They had to endure a risky 15-hour journey on the back of a motorbike to get to a specialist hospital where they were operated on by a team of volunteer surgeons.

Despite the 870-mile (1,400km) round trip across jungle, on treacherous roads and by air to get to capital city Kinshasa, the girls are said to be ‘doing well’.
