FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Frankfurt Airport has stopped all incoming flights on Sunday due to snow and freezing temperatures, a spokeswoman for Germany's biggest airport said.

She said inbound flights were suspended tentatively for one hour from 8:00 a.m. EDT (1300 GMT).

Several aircraft could not take off because of poor weather, and there were not enough parking positions for incoming flights.
