French gendarmes and investigators sift on March 26, 2015 through the scattered debris on the crash site of the Germanwings Airbus A320 in the French Alps above the southeastern town of SeyneIn a chilling account of the final minutes of Germanwings Flight 4U 9525, lead prosecutor Brice Robin said Thursday that 28-year-old German Andreas Lubitz initiated the plane' descent into the French Alps while alone at the controls. Lubitz appeared to "show a desire to want to destroy" the plane, Robin told reporters after his team analysed the Airbus A320's cockpit voice recorder. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the revelation added an "absolutely unimaginable dimension" to Tuesday's tragedy, in which 150 people were killed, mostly German and Spanish nationals. Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said he was "deeply shaken" by the news and sent his "heartfelt affection" to the victims' families, dozens of whom had arrived near the crash site.
