Kenya Hails First Test Tube Girls 

Doctors in Kenya are celebrating the birth of the country's first test tube babies, two girls born in Nairobi. The babies were born to women aged 30 and 35 at a private hospital…

Dr Joshua Noreh, who oversaw the births, hailed them as a landmark for Kenya, 28 years after the first test tube baby was born in the UK.

Louise Brown was born in Oldham in 1978, the first of more than one million babies conceived through in vitro fertilisation (IVF) around the world. [Daily Nation; AFP news agency; 9May06, http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/4754537.stm]
