    Background: More than 3 thousand twins ranging from babies to grandparents gathered in Pamplona today (Monday 8 June) for the start of Spain's fifth annual "Operation Gemini" Congress of Twins.

    The twins, and some triplets as well, arrived in the northern city of Pamplona having come by trains, buses and cars from all parts of the country, but mainly the Basque areas. One set of twins travelled from the Canary Islands to attend.

    Reunions of twins began in Eibar in 1965 and have steadily increased in popularity, although no attempt was made this year to organise a competition to find the "Most Identical Twins" as competitors in previous years have tended towards wide disagreement with the judges' decisions.

    Tourists passing through Pamplona "saw double" as a long line of congress delegates filed into the local cathedral for a special Mass conducted by twin priests. "Hermandad" of "brotherhood" is the reason given for holding the annual Congress of Twins.
