Police in Pancevo responded to the leak.
A dozen people were taken to the hospital and several homes were evacuated due to an ammonia leak in the Serbian industrial town of Pancevo, authorities said. All 12 were released after medical checks. The leak, the second such incident in less than a month, happened on January 12 from a tanker truck parked in a lot near Pancevo, 20 kilometers northeast of Belgrade, Radio Television of Serbia (RTS) reported. Authorities said a probe was under way to determine responsibility for the incident. Last month, Transport Minister Goran Vesic blamed poor infrastructure for an ammonia leak in a village in southeast Serbia that left two dead and a dozen injured.
