9 Dec 10 - "Icy roads paralysed much of the Paris region Thursday after the heaviest snow in a quarter of a century.

"French Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux asked drivers not to travel unless absolutely necessary the day after 11 cm (more than four inches) of snow fell on Paris.

"He said around 1,000 motorists had to spend the night snow-bound in their cars.

Thousands spent the night at Charles de Gaulle airport after their flights were cancelled, and thousands of stranded motorists were put up in municipal halls and school sports halls around the Paris region.

In Velizy, southwest of Paris, between 7,000 and 8,000 people spent the night in company offices, at a shopping centre and in a sports hall.

Around 3,000 lorries were stuck on northern French motorways headed for the capital.

Meanwhile in Germany heavy snowfall prompted the shutdown of Frankfurt international airport, stranding nearly 3,000 people.

The airport reported 15 cm (six inches) of snow Thursday afternoon.

In Berlin, where snow averaged 17 cm (more than six inches), some 200 flights were cancelled.
