    SARAJEVO, August 30 (RIA Novosti) - A man from Kazakhstan and a woman from Ukraine, who both went on a bicycle tour across the south of Montenegro, were forced to spent a night on a tree saving their lives from a bear, local CdM news portal reported.

    Policemen and residents of the town of Vilpazar went on a search and rescue mission on Thursday after the two tourists called their friend using a mobile telephone saying they were on a tree in the nearby forest hiding from a bear.
