Can't delete snapshot - An unknown error occurred


I'm unable to delete 4 snapshots. They are not in use by an AMI. When I try to delete I get the error: "Error deleting Snapshots
snap-07316d62a5f9e7xxxx: An unknown error occurred"

How can I delete them?

Same problem here: some snapshots cannot be deleted.

Also, when going to the "Autorisations" tab, I get "An unknown error occurred" too. And after some time, they disappear spontaneously.
