Halima Cisse, 25, gave birth on Tuesday to five girls and four boys at a Moroccan hospital where she was lying, Mali Health Minister Fanta Siby said in a statement. The presentation was made through the Caesarean section.

Ms Cisse was expected to give birth to seven children according to ultrasound tests conducted in Mali and Morocco which apparently did not detect two more children.

On Tuesday, Dr Siby said infants and mothers “are all doing well”. They are expected to return home for several weeks.

He praised the medical teams in Mali and Morocco, “whose professionalism is the essence of the happy outcome of this pregnancy”.

Ms Cisse’s pregnancy has attracted the West African nation and attracted the attention of its leaders – with officials taking her to Morocco when she needs professional care, Reuters news agency reported.

Moroccan health ministry spokesman Rachid Koudhari told AFP that he was unaware of frequent births in the country.
