RIYADH: Libyan conjoined twins have arrived in the Kingdom following directives from King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to study their case and the possibility of separating them, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
The children, Ahmed and Mohammed, were transferred to the King Abdullah Children Specialist Hospital in Riyadh. Their parents, who accompanied the boys, thanked the Saudi leadership for its warm welcome, hospitality and interest.
The supervisor general of the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center and renowned pediatric surgeon, Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah, said the Kingdom’s initiative was in recognition of the difficult circumstances facing Libya.
He added that the initiative also reflected the humanitarian role played by the Kingdom’s leadership in dozens of countries that needed help and assistance with such cases.
The case of Ahmed and Mohammed is being studied as part of the Saudi National Siamese Twins Separation Program. source
