A Malian woman has given birth to nine babies after medics missed two on her scans and told her she would have seven.

‘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.
