Woman from Mali gives birth to nine babies

A woman from Mali has given birth to nine babies - two more than doctors had detected during scans, according to the country's Ministry of Health.

Halima Cisse gave birth to the nonuplets in Morocco. Mali's government flew her there for specialist care.

"I'm very happy," her husband told the BBC. "My wife and the babies [five girls and four boys] are doing well."

A woman who had eight babies in the US in 2009 holds the Guinness World Record for the most children delivered at a single birth to survive. (BBC News)
