Antwerp, Belgium - Identical twins were killed by Belgian doctors last month in a unique mercy killing under Belgium's euthanasia laws.
The two men, 45, from the Antwerp region were both born Deaf and sought euthanasia after finding that they would also soon go blind.
The pair told doctors that they were unable to bear the thought of not being able to see each other again.
