State Department IDs Third American Killed in Crash

The State Department on Thursday identified Robert Oliver as the third American killed in the crash of a German jetliner in the Alps. It did not immediately release further information about him. The other two Americans known to be on the plane were identified Wednesday — Yvonne Selke and her daughter Emily, from Nokesville, Virginia. The plane, Germanwings Flight 9525, crashed Tuesday in the French Alps, killing all 150 people on board. Investigators said on Thursday that the co-pilot of the plane apparently took it down deliberately.
