Nguyen Duc, a Vietnamese man born as a conjoined twin, plans to get married in October, a Japanese supporter said Saturday.

The supporter, Bunro Fujimoto, 72, a professor emeritus at Shiga University, said he has been invited to Duc’s wedding.

The 25-year-old Duc was separated from his brother in an operation in 1988. Duc has visited Japan numerous times and Japanese doctors have provided him with medical support. Duc and his brother, Viet, were born in central Vietnam in February 1981.
