Serbian minister hit by giant ice chunk escapes injury

Serbia's energy minister escaped serious injury on Thursday when he was hit on the head by a heavy chunk of ice which split his protective helmet.

Aleksandar Antic was touring an eastern area hit by a recent cold snap when the block of ice fell from an overhead power line.

Power was restored to some 5,000 people in the municipality of Majdanpek later in the day.

Kasia Madera has more details.
