Hundreds of dead birds fell down from the sky in the center of Rome, Italy just after fireworks for New Year.
Roads around the Termini train station end of Via Cavour were covered by carcasses.
A motorist uploaded a disturbing video on Youtube:
The birds, startled and disorientated by the explosions, are thought to have died after flying into windows and high voltage electricity cables just after midnight.
The incident occurred amid a New Year firework ban which was completely ignored, as in previous years.
