Doctors Remove Four Extra Limbs From Six-Legged Baby

It was earlier reported that a baby was born in Pakistan with six legs, four of which were inherited from a parasitic twin (which didn't develop properly). See the full gist here.
But today, four of the six legs have been removed after a team of five doctors performed an 8-hour long operation.
Doctors examined MRI, blood tests, and CT scans before deciding to operate on the boy

The surgery was reported to be a success.
