The Northeast digging out from the first winter snowstorm of the season. As NPR's Joel Rose reports the storm created slippery conditions and some delays at airports. 
The storm dropped several inches of snow across the Mid-Atlantic, flights arriving at Philadelphia International Airport were delayed because of ice and snow accumulation, some by more than two hours. Airports in New York and New Jersey5 reported fewer delays. At a news conference, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the city had 1,500 snow plows6 at the ready, each equipped with global positioning systems. But Bloomberg said the snow did not appear to be as bad as initially7 forecast. 
"So whatever does get on the ground should disappear within a day or so, and because it's a weekend, it has less effect on commerce and traffic."
For many parts of the Northeast, this is the first major snowfall since the rare October storm that knocked out power to millions. Joel Rose, NPR News, Philadelphia.
Afghan President Hamid Karzai is telling his nation's government that he is doing what he can, including the previously8 unthinkable, to try to bring peace to his nation. NPR's Ahmad Shafi reports.
In his speech to the Afghan Parliament, Karzai announced he has personally met with representatives of the Hezbi Islami Party. They are part of a group of insurgents9 operating mostly in the south and eastern Afghanistan. The leader of the group, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, is a former US ally and currently listed as a terrorist by the United States. The Afghan president also said he supports the Taliban's opening an office in the Gulf10 nation of Qatar. He said he has lost many friends as he went through a long list of his allies and tribal11 elders who have systematically12 been assassinated13 by the militants14 over the last two years. He was very emotional when he read his own brother's name Ahmed Wali Karzai who was killed over the summer. Ahmad Shafi, NPR News, Kabul.
The UN shows that more than 30,000 Afghans have applied15 for political asylum16

Britain's broadcasting regulator has pulled the license17 of Iran's state-run English language Press TV. Larry Miller18 reports, Press TV claims the British Royal Family is behind the move.
Broadcasting's independent regulator Ofcom says Press TV's practice of making editorial decisions from Tehran breaches19 its license terms. It warned the broadcaster in November to switch editorial control to the UK or lose British satellite and cable access. Ofcom says Press TV failed to respond. However, Press TV claims the move is retribution for calling the regulator subservient20 to the British government and the monarchy21
"Now Ofcom, the media arm of the Royal Family, is seeking to put an end to Press TV's broadcasting in the UK."
Press TV also failed to pay 150,000-dollar fine imposed for airing an interview with an imprisoned22 Newsweek journalist carried out under duress23. For NPR News, I'm Larry Miller in London.
