French aviation authorities have canceled half of the flights into and out of Paris Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle airport until 1:00 pm (1200 GMT) Friday because of freezing winter conditions.

Forecasters were expecting below-zero conditions Friday morning and the airport was having trouble getting hold of enough glycol, the liquid used to de-ice aircraft, officials said in a statement late Thursday.
