Taps run dry for thousands in Serbia

More than 60,000 people without drinking water in Uzice, and authorities do not know when access will resume.

    More than 60,000 people have gone without drinking water in Serbia for more than two weeks.

    Authorities said shutting the taps was for peoples' benefit because there were toxins found in the water supply.

    But the government can not say when the water will start flowing again to the town of Uzice.

    With one of the country's biggest days, Orthodox Christmas, quickly approaching, people are running out of patience.
