Europe’s bitterly cold weather has claimed hundreds of lives so far and has left many cities and villages without water and electricity.

Heavy snowfall has damaged power lines and infrastructure in Bosnia, while 38 more deaths from a cold snap were registered in Ukraine in the past 24 hours, bringing the toll from freezing temperatures across the former Soviet republic to 101, the Emergencies Ministry said on Friday.

Meanwhile, Bosnia has recorded its eighth victim after an 87-year-old woman died of hypothermia.

As the cold snap continues to sweep across Europe, we bring here a slideshow presenting some of the aerial pictures of parts of Bosnia and Ukraine covered with snow.
