French Prosecutor: Co-Pilot 'Deliberately' Crashed Germanwings Flight

VOANEWS: A French prosecutor said Thursday that the co-pilot of the Germanwings passenger jet that crashed in the French Alps this week made a "deliberate attempt to destroy the aircraft."

Marseilles prosecutor Brice Robin said the co-pilot, 28-year-old Andreas Lubitz, locked the pilot out of the cockpit, leaving himself alone in control of the Airbus A320. The prosecutor said Lubitz then "accelerated the descent" of the aircraft, flying it at 700 kilometers an hour and crashing it into the remote, snowy mountains in southeastern France. All 150 people aboard were killed.
