ULAN BATOR, July 10 (Xinhua) -- A 42-year-old Mongolian woman gave birth to twins on a chartered flight from Istanbul, Turkey to Mongolia's capital Ulan Bator early Friday.

"The twin baby girls were born two months early and their mother is now under isolation and medical observation," Dulmaa Nyamkhuu, head of Mongolia's National Center for Communicable Diseases said Friday at a press conference.
