Germany, Berlin
March 26, 2015 at 14:43 GMT +00:00 · Published

Emerging news that Germanwings co-pilot of flight 4U9525 crashed the plane on purpose is a "horrible burden for the relatives of the victims," German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared in a press conference in Berlin on Thursday. During the statement, Merkel reaffirmed the German governments position on doing "everything imaginable" to support the ongoing investigation.

After evaluating the Airbus A320 black box recorder, investigators have concluded that co-pilot Andreas Lubitz locked the flight's captain out of the cockpit before beginning a fatal descent into the French Alps. The 4U 9525 flight crashed en route from Barcelona to Dusseldorf with 144 passengers and six crew members on board on Tuesday. No survivors have been found.
