Extreme freeze claims lives in eastern Europe

At least 43 people have died in the past five days in Ukraine in a cold snap that has brought temperatures down to minus 33 degrees Celsius, causing chaos across swathes of southern and eastern Europe. Most of the victims were homeless people killed by hypothermia, Ukraine's emergencies ministries said as the country reeled from its coldest winter in six years. Temperatures in the eastern European nation do not normally drop below minus 15C in winter. Another 500 people have been treated in hospital for frostbite and other cold-related ailments while 1600 centres have been set up to provide makeshift accommodation and dispense food and drinks for homeless people, the ministry said. Al Jazeera's Omar Al Saleh reports.
