An Airbus operated by Lufthansa's Germanwings budget airline crashed into a mountainside in the French Alps on Tuesday, killing all 150 people on board including 16 schoolchildren.


Germanwings confirmed its flight 4U 9525 from Barcelona to Duesseldorf went down with 144 passengers and six crew on board.


One of the plane's black box recorders has been found at the crash site, about 100 km north of the Riviera city of Nice, and will be examined immediately, France's interior minister said.
