Topic: Search teams probe wreckage of jet in French Alps

By Jean-Francois Rosnoblet SEYNE-LES-ALPES, France (Reuters) - French investigators on Wednesday searched for the reason why a German Airbus plowed into an Alpine mountainside, killing all 150 on board including 16 teenagers returning from a school trip to Spain. Helicopters flew over the site where the A320 operated by Lufthansa's Germanwings budget airline disintegrated after it went down in a remote area of ravines en route to Duesseldorf from Barcelona. We will have to put it back together in the next few hours to be able to get to the bottom of this tragedy," French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve told RTL radio, adding the box was still viable. Lufthansa said it was working on the assumption that the tragedy had been an accident, and any other theory would be speculation.
