A military helicopter carrying an ill baby for treatment has crashed in thick fog near an airport in the Serbian capital of Belgrade.
The child, who was suffering from respiratory problems, was picked up by the helicopter after the ambulance it was travelling in got blocked by a landslide in the southern region of Raska, Serbia's B92 broadcaster reported.
Seven people - four crew, two medical workers and the baby, are believed to have been killed in the crash on Friday evening, though there is not yet any official word on casualties.
The Russian-made Mi-17 transport helicopter came down "in the wider area" of Belgrade airport, the defence ministry said. "The control tower lost contact with the helicopter at 22.31," it said.
The UN's highest court has ruled that neither Croatia nor Serbia committed genocide against each other's populations during the Balkan wars that followed the collapse of Yugoslavia in the 1990s.
Peter Tomka, president of the International Court of Justice, said many crimes had been committed by both countries' forces during the conflict.
However, the intent to commit genocide - by "destroying a population in whole or in part" - had not been proven against either country, he added.

Serbia have been awarded a walkover 3-0 win following the abandonment of their Euro 2016 clash with Albania earlier this month.
UEFA have also deducted three points from Serbia for their involvement in the abandonment, after the match was cut short when a drone flew onto the pitch and fighting broke out.
Serbia will have to play their next two qualifiers behind closed doors, the Serbian FA have announced.
Albania are set to appeal the decision, their coach Gianni De Biazi told AFP: "The UEFA commission's decision does not give justice. The three points belong to Albania and they've taken away from us what we've deserved."
UEFA are yet to comment.

Both Serbia and Albania are set to be charged by UEFA on Wednesday following the abandonment of their Euro 2016 qualifier.
There was fighting on the pitch in Belgrade which started when a pro-Albania flag was pulled from a drone flying over the pitch by Serbia defender Stefan Mitrovic.
Martin Atkinson, the referee, took the teams off the pitch and called the game off when items were thrown onto the turf.
UEFA president Michel Platini labelled the scenes "inexcusable".
The Frenchman said in a statement: "Football is supposed to bring people together and our game should not be mixed with politics of any kind. The scenes in Belgrade last night were inexcusable."
Serbian emergency services have cleared 12 towns and villages along the banks of the raging Sava river, including one where soldiers, police and volunteers have been working around the clock to protect the country's main power plant, Reuters has reported.
Entire towns and villages are underwater, thousands of hills have crumpled into landslides and tens of thousands have been forced to flee their homes.
Floodwaters triggered more than 2,000 landslides across much of the Balkans, laying waste to entire towns and villages and disturbing land mines left over from the region's 1990s war.
The Balkans' worst flooding since record-keeping began forced tens of thousands of people from their homes and threatened to inundate Serbia's main power plant, which supplies electricity to a third of the country and most of the capital, Belgrade.
Authorities organised a frenzied helicopter airlift to get terrified families to safety before the water swallowed up their homes. Many were plucked from rooftops.
