Jet crashes in Alps, 148 on board; 'no survivors' expected
A passenger jet carrying 148 people crashed today in the French Alps as it flew from Barcelona to Duesseldorf, authorities said. As search-and-rescue teams raced to the remote region, France's president warned that no survivors were expected.
Eric Ciotti, the head of the regional council in southeast France, said the crash site was at Meolans-Revels, near the popular ski resort of Pra Loup.
