SCARY! Mysterious craters spotted at the Serbian 'end of the world'

At least seven suspicious craters have been spotted in Serbia including five of them in a region known as the "end of the world".

"We know now of seven craters in the Arctic area with five are directly on the Yamal peninsula, one in Yamal Autonomous district, and one is on the north of the Krasnoyarsk region, near the Taimyr peninsula, " The Serbia Times has written quoting Vasily Bogoyavlensky, deputy director of Russia's Oil and Gas Research Institute.

He urged: 'It is important not to scare people, but to understand that it is a very serious problem and we must research this.'

The satellite image shows one of them has at least 20 water-filled "baby craters" around it.

Bogoyavlensky and other experts believe gas emissions, possibly linked to climate change, are causing the holes to appear and suspect there are many more to be found, NBC News has written.
