Leaked transcript describes Alps plane's last moments

Seventy-eight distinct strands of DNA have been isolated by forensics teams working at the scene of the Germanwings plane crash in southern France.

The cockpit voice recorder suggested the co-pilot Andreas Lubitz crashed the plane deliberately.

A transcript leaked to German media revealed the frenzied final minutes before the crash, with the pilot, locked out of the cockpit, shouting "open the damn door!"
