France Halts Search for Bodies at Germanwings Site

A local official said on Saturday that French investigators have ended their search for bodies in the Alps where a Germanwings passenger jet crashed last month, killing all 150 people on board. A spokesman for the local government authority said, "The search for bodies is over, but the search for the victims' personal belongings is continuing." The identification of victims will now continue through the analysis of 150 sets of DNA found at site, which could take several weeks. The prosecutor leading the French legal probe has cautioned that the number of DNA sets does not necessarily mean all the victims have been found. As soon as a DNA set is matched to one of the victims, the family will immediately be informed.
