European Parliament President Martin Schulz on the plane crash in Southern France


"In the name of the European Parliament I wish to convey my sincere condolences to all the families and friends of the victims on the Germanwings 4U9525 flight from Barcelona to Düsseldorf which crashed this morning near Digne-les-Bains in Southern France.

We grieve this terrible loss which has struck individual people and families as well as nations. Tomorrow, at the opening of its plenary session, the European Parliament will remember the victims with a minute of silence."
