Panda twins delight Japanese zoo

New-born twin giant pandas made their media debut at a zoo in Japan on Friday in Shirahama.

The brother and sister were born on 11 August to proud mother Rauhin and father Eimei.

The zoo said the cubs were doing well, and have quadrupled their birth weight to a healthy 1.5lb (700 grams).

Japan had only nine pandas in captivity until the twins were born.
