S Korean sub-zero winter threatens homeless

As temperatures drop in South Korea's coldest weather in almost thirty years, the homeless struggle to survive.

    South Korea's capital Seoul is in the grip of some of the coldest January weather for nearly thirty years.

    The temperature dipped overnight to minus 16 degrees celsius.
