Woman gives birth to quintuplets 9 years after marriage...

An Egyptian woman gave birth to quintuplets nearly nine years after marriage, but one of them died just after birth, newspapers reported on Monday.

The unnamed woman delivered at Al Manshawi Hospital in the northern Gharbia province just after she was admitted, papers said.

They quoted doctors as saying the woman gave birth to three baby girls and two boys but one of the boys died.

“The mother and the remaining four babies are in good health,” the Saudi Sada daily and Egyptian newspapers quoted Dr Mohammed Rushdy, head of the gynecology section, as saying.
