'We are very, very sorry for the losses that have occurred'

The CEOs of Germanwings and Lufthansa have visited Seyne-les-Alpes, the town nearest the site where Germanwings plane flight 4U 9525 crashed just over a week ago.

Carsten Spohr of Lufthansa said the airlines were "very, very sorry that such a terrible accident could have happened at Lufthansa, where we put so much focus on safety".

They said they would continue to help the victims for as long as "help was needed".

However, there were angry scenes from journalists when the CEOs refused to answer questions.
