Japan: Heavy Snow Leaves Thousands Stranded

Thousands of people were left stranded at Tokyo's Narita International Airport after 71 flights were cancelled due to heavy snow.

A total of 3,400 travellers were forced to spend the night in the terminal as the season's first deluge in the Japanese capital left around three inches of snow.

Central Tokyo and Narita received some of the worst weather on Monday - a national holiday in Japan - causing major delays to traffic and trains.
