The High Court in Namibia has refused to issue a gay couple emergency travel documents so they can bring their surrogate twins home from South Africa.
The girls were born there last month.

The Namibian authorities say Phillip Luhl must show genetic proof that he is their father before allowing them to travel.
Mr. Luhl and his husband, Guillermo Delgado, argue that this is discriminatory.

Mr. Delgado is in Namibia with the couple’s young son, while Mr. Luhl is stuck in Johannesburg with the girls.
Sexual contact between males is forbidden in Namibia, but the law is rarely enforced.
