HOSPITAL officials in northern Brazil say a woman has given birth to conjoined twin boys with one body and two heads.

Obstetrician Neila Dahas of the Santa Casa de Misericodia Hospital in the city of Belem says the twins were born on Monday by Cesarean section.

The boys are named Jesus and Emanuel.
