A Pakistani neurosurgeon says doctors are studying a pair of twin girls who were recently born connected at the head to determine whether they can separate them.

The infants were brought to a hospital in Islamabad on Monday from the city of Sahiwal in Punjab province where they were born a few days earlier. The two are connected at the head facing opposite directions.

Khaleequz Zaman, a neurosurgeon at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences, said doctors will decide this week whether they can operate on the twins.
