And the Candidates has been stopped

The 2020 Candidates tournament has been halted after 7 of the 14 rounds. The reason given is that the Russian Government is stopping all flights in and out of the country, and the players and officials would have no way of getting home. FIDE have said that the second half of the event will be held at a later date, although obviously they do not know when that will be.
