Greek PM Tsipras arrived at Davos Forum on foot due to heavy snow storm

Greek mission forced to walk due traffic jam

Greek PM Alexis Tsipras and his entourage were forced to walk two kilometres on to reach the building that is hosting the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland as the motor vehicles carrying the Greek mission were stuck in traffic. The heavy snow that fell in the Swiss city resulted in a long traffic jam, meaning the Greek PM had to reach the building on foot in order to avoid being late.
