Germanwings crash 150 dead-police
Hope of finding possible survivors on board of Germanwings airline
is fading. The plane reportedly crashed in a remote area of the French Alps on Tuesday, police said.
According to authorities, rescue operations will be useless since there are no survivors.
"There is no need for any rescue operations, everyone is dead," said a police officer in the town of Le Vernet, near the crash site.
He said it was virtually impossible that survivors would be found among the 144 passengers and six crew on board the Airbus flight from Barcelona to Duesseldorf.
The area had been "sealed off for the start of the investigation," he added.
Meanwhile, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said a helicopter that landed on the crash site confirmed there were no survivors.
He added that authorities are still probing the cause of the crash.
