A Bangladeshi girl separated this week from her conjoined twin sister was talking and behaving normally yesterday after waking from a medically induced coma.

Trishna is doing well and has left intensive care, said Wirginia Maixner, director of neurosurgery at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, Australia. Her sister, Krishna, was due to be brought out of the coma later.

Krishna will have a longer period of adjustment as the separation brought more changes to her body and brain. MRI scans on Wednesday showed no signs of brain injury. The twins, who were joined at the head, will be three next month.
