Semi identical twins in Aus

The boy and the girl, now four, from Brisbane, in Australia, are identical on their mother's side.

But they share only a proportion of their father's DNA - placing them, genetically, somewhere between fraternal and identical twins.

Experts say the phenomenon is extremely rare - embryos such as these often do not survive.
