  1. Germany Holds Memorial for Crash Victims

    Teutonic flags hung at half-staff as Cologne Cathedral hosted 1,500 mourners paying tribute to the victims of Germanwings flight 9525, which crashed last month in France. German Chancellor Angela Merkel was joined by French and Spanish officials for the ecumenical service. Investigators strongly suspect that depressed co-pilot Andreas Lubitz deliberately crashed the Airbus on March 24, killing all 150 aboard. The investigation continues, along with efforts to identify the victims, but today’s memorial aims to help a nation begin to heal.
