Hospital: Egyptian woman gives birth to septuplets

An Egyptian woman successfully gave birth to septuplets early Saturday in the coastal city of Alexandria, a hospital director said. Ghazala Khamis, 27, is stable though she did require a blood transfusion during the caesarian section due to bleeding, said Emad Darwish, director of the El-Shatbi hospital where she gave birth. The newborns, four boys and three girls, have been placed in incubators in four different hospitals since they were premature, he added. "This is a very rare pregnancy, something I have never witnessed over my past 33 years in this profession," Darwish said.
