NEW DELHI: A Belgian zoo announced on Friday the “extremely rare” birth of twin baby giant pandas, three years after the arrival of a young male, which was a first for Belgium at the time.


The Pairi Daiza zoo said the safe delivery of the twins, one male and one female, on Thursday represented a “new hope” for the black and white bear, of which fewer than 2,000 now live in the wild, according to the WWF.
