Passengers face delays in Moscow after freezing rain

Freezing rain in Moscow, which immediately became ice on the ground, has led to cancellations of 200 flights and left stranded passengers at Moscow's Sheremetyevo and Domodedovo International Airports.

The airports have faced delays for two days after the freezing rain caused power failures.

Pictures show people in the security area at Sheremetyevo airport chanting "Shame!" while huge crowds of passengers queued at Domodedovo airport.
