Heavy snow has disrupted public transport in southern China, stranding tens of thousands of people outside a rail station, police say. The crowd outside Guangzhou station swelled to nearly 100,000 at its peak on Monday night, police said.
Central China has experienced some of its coldest weather in years.
The rare snow has coincided with the run-up to Chinese New Year - where hundreds of millions of Chinese travel home to see their families.
