Alps crash: French prosecutors open new inquiry

French investigators are opening a fresh inquiry into the case of the Germanwings co-pilot who deliberately crashed a plane in the French Alps, killing 150 people.

The move follows confirmation that some doctors who treated Andreas Lubitz judged him unfit to fly, but did not alert his employers because of confidentiality laws.

Both Germanwings and Lufthansa have previously said that Lubitz, 27, had passed all fitness to fly tests.

Elaine Jung reports.
