Transport in Germany snowed in

Berlin - Heavy snowfall closed Germany's busiest airport in Frankfurt for four hours overnight and prompted major delays in rail travel Thursday, authorities said.

Wintry conditions prompted the shutdown of Frankfurt international airport in the west of the country from 23:00 Wednesday to about 03:00 Thursday, a spokesman said.

Of the nearly 1 400 flights scheduled Thursday, 200 had been cancelled - 114 arrivals and 86 departures - by mid-morning.

"The situations is slowly getting back to normal," the spokesman said.

Train travel was hit by major delays, with high-speed trains forced to slow down to 160 kilometres per hour, down from 250 kilometres per hour in normal conditions, a spokesman for the state-owned rail company said.
