Some 20 people remain stranded on two large ice floes near the shores of Latvia, according to the latest reports.

Around 200 people, mostly ice fishermen, were rescued from two drifting ice floes in the Gulf of Riga on Friday.

Latvian authorities have dismissed earlier reports that 500 people were at risk, according to international media.

Russia Today says that the Latvian Emergency Ministry has once again urged people not to walk on ice.
