Hard-to-breed panda gives birth at zoo

BERLIN: Berlin Zoo said Monday its resident panda Meng Meng had delivered twins, as it voiced delight at the first such births in the country. “Meng Meng became a mom — twice! We are so happy, we are speechless,” the zoo said on Twitter, also posting a video of the new mother guiding one of her pink babies to feed. The births are particularly rare as it is notoriously hard to breed pandas.
