In pictures: Europe's frozen landscape

Heavy snowfall blankets countries across Europe in the harshest winter the continent has endured in decades.

    From Moscow to Rome, Europe has seen record-breaking low temperatures for the past week.

    The cold snap has killed more than 200 people, hitting the homeless and elderly particularly hard. The continent's energy consumption has come under strain, as Russia curtails its gas deliveries to compensate its rising domestic need for heating.

    The blizzards have caused transport chaos and left many people stranded, in both rural and urban areas.
