Ladan and Laleh Bijani,
Iranian conjoined twins, died after a 50-hour surgical procedure in Singapore. The operation to separate the 29-year-old women was the first ever performed on adults. The pair, who had studied law in Teheran, said they were willing to risk dying for the chance to be separated.
