Hi,
Try using a left hand drill bit to try and extract the broken screws. Use it with either a hand drill or if you have a steady hand, a variable speed (read slow speed) battery powered drill.
Here is a link to one supplier. There are others if this doesn't suit you.

To me, the screws look small but hopefully they are about approximately 2mm. If so, then there are drill bits available which you should be able to use. A 1/32" drill bit = .79mm and a 3/64" =1mm.
The idea is to drill into the screw and because it is drilling in anti-clockwise the screw will hopefully start to come out as you drill in. Stop when you have enough to get a good grab on it as you don't wish to drill all the way through and damage anything.
-It may be prudent if you are considering this option to practice a bit first on some similar sized broken screws lodged in some wood etc. just to get the hang of it.
