Volcanic Eruption in Iceland Closes Airports in Northwest Europe

Hosted by

Airports in Britain, Scandinavia and other parts of northwestern Europe are shut down today and thousands of flights have been cancelled. It's all because of a cloud of ash that's moving toward continental Europe from the erupting Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland. We hear how the eruption has grounded air traffic from David Brown, who reports for the Times of London, and Peter Markovski, deputy news editor at Norway's Aftenposten.
