‘They are together, they are equal’: the agonising choice facing father of conjoined twins

Separation surgery would save the life of one of the three-year-old girls but lead to the death of the other. Ibrahima Ndiaye, the twins’ father, tells how he came to his decision.

Without a separation, both will almost certainly die.
