Twins for pair who lost triplets in Qatar


The parents of New Zealand triplets who died in a Qatari shopping mall fire last year announced on Thursday that they have had baby twins.

Jane and Martin Weekes lost their toddlers Lillie, Jackson and Willsher in a blaze at Doha’s Villagio mall in May 2012 that killed 19 people.

Martin said the twins, a girl called Poppy and a boy named Parker, were born by cesarean section on Wednesday morning in Auckland, where the couple set up home after the tragedy.
