Angry passengers "involved" in fights at Moscow's airport

Russia's President has ordered prosecutors to investigate the management of Moscow's two main international airports after fights broke out involving frustrated passengers.

They were stranded when bad weather forced the cancellation of hundreds of flights.

Travellers were seen trying to beat up staff at one airport and passengers at the other stormed passport control.

Bill Hayton reports.
