PANDA TWINS BAPTISED

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

VI­ENNA: Two pan­das con­ceived nat­u­rally and born at Vi­enna zoo, Fu Feng (Happy Phoenix) and Fu Ban (Happy Com­pan­ion), were of­fi­cially baptised on Wed­nes­day, 100 days af­ter their birth. The twin cubs were ab­sent from the cer­e­mony at­tended by China’s am­bas­sador. The male and fe­male cubs are be­ing kept away from the pub­lic’s gaze un­til the year end. “The names bring good for­tune and it is a spe­cial sign that the twins were born in the 45th year of the diplo­matic re­la­tion­ship be­tween the Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of China and Aus­tria,” am­bas­sador Li Xiaosi said. – AFP
