Co-pilot Lubitz in hospital two weeks before crash

German prosecutors say they have found evidence that Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot who crashed his plane into the Alps killing 150 people, had been suffering from an undisclosed illness.

They say he had hidden his illness from his employers Lufthansa, and was in hospital earlier this month.

A police search of his home had found torn-up sick notes, but no suicide note.
