25-year-old woman gives birth to nine babies at a goal
A Malian woman has given birth to nine babies after medics
missed two on her scans and told her she would have seven.
Halima Cisse, 25, and all five girls and four boys are ‘doing fine’
after a cesarean section in Morocco.
Ms Cisse was flown to Morocco to make sure the babies
were delivered safely after the pregnancy attracted the attention
of the West African nation’s leaders.

Ms Cisse’s five daughters and four sons were all ‘doing well’,
as was the mother, authorities said.
‘The newborns (five girls and four boys) and the mother are all doing
well,’ Mali’s health minister, Fanta Siby, said in a statement.
Cisse was expected to give birth to seven babies, according
to ultrasounds conducted in Morocco and Mali that missed
two of the siblings. All were delivered by caesarean section.
Nonuplets are extremely rare and medical complications in multiple
births of this kind often mean that some of the babies do not reach full term.
