Germanwings Co-pilot Hid Mental Illness from Employer - Prosecutors

27 March 2015 21:46:28 Novinite.com (Sofia News Agency)

Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot of crashed Germanwings plane, has hid the details of a mental illness from his employers, according to German prosecutors. The prosecutors said they found torn-up sick notes in his home, including one covering the day of the crash of the Airbus A320, but didn’t say what his illness was. In a statement released on Friday, prosecutors said they had seized medical documents from Lubitz's apartment in Duesseldorf and the home he shared with his parents in the town of Montabaur, which “”support the preliminary assessment he concealed his sickness from his employer and colleagues”. Investigators believe Lubitz, 28 has deliberately locked the captain out of the cockpit before sending the aircraft into a steep descent and crashing it against the side of a mountain in the French Alps some 100 km north of Nice, killing himself and the other 149 people on board on Tuesday. Germany’s Federal Aviation Office said on Friday that a medical certificate issued to Lubitz that allowed him to fly noted that he had a medical condition. The document, however, didn’t specify whether that condition was related to a psychological issue. Police and rescue workers on Friday continued to com the crash site for victims’ remains, along with other clues and DNA that could help them identify those who died in the crash. France’s Prime Minister Manuel Valls called on Lufthansa, the parent company of Germanwings, to reveal as much information as possible about the worst aviation disaster in 15 years to help understand why Lubitz “got to the point of this horrific action.”

Egypt and Saudi Arabia positioning to intervene in Yemen

27 March 2015 21:44:19 WN.com - World News

SANAA, Yemen — As airstrikes in Yemen intensified on their second day Friday, Egypt and Saudi Arabia were considering an intervention on the ground, aimed at giving the president a secure foothold to return to the country, while backing Sunni tribesmen to fight against Shiite rebels and their allies, military officials said. A likely entry point for troops from the Saudi-led Arab coalition was the southern port of Aden, the Yemeni and Egyptian military officials told The Associated Press. But that could be a tough prospect: The city is already a battleground, and on Friday forces loyal to the rebels’ top ally, former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, were advancing toward it. The...

Torn-up sick notes show crash pilot should have been grounded

27 March 2015 21:44:17 WN.com - World News

DUESSELDORF: German authorities said on Friday they had found torn-up sick notes showing that the pilot who crashed a plane into the French Alps was suffering from an illness that should have grounded him on the day of the tragedy. French prosecutors believe Andreas Lubitz, 27, locked himself alone in the cockpit of the Germanwings Airbus A320 on Tuesday and deliberately steered it into a mountain, killing all 150 people on board. "Documents with medical contents were confiscated that point towards an existing illness and corresponding treatment by doctors," said the prosecutors' office in Duesseldorf, where the co-pilot lived and where the doomed flight from Barcelona was heading. Torn-up...

Have crises put US-Israel relations on new, more honest, course?

27 March 2015 21:44:17 WN.com - World News

Mounting and unusually public tensions between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have exposed fault lines in the US-Israel relationship that portend a rocky and perhaps uncharted course ahead for the two allies. Despite what is likely to be a bumpy ride for years to come, some diplomatic experts see a silver lining, in that they say relations will be more realistic and more reflective of changing perspectives in each country. It may have been the very-public differences between two leaders with clashing worldviews that enabled an airing of an evolving relationship. But for some diplomatic experts, it has been above all Mr. Netanyahu’s public opposition to then...

The co-pilot suspected of the mass murder of the passengers and crew of a Germanwings airbus apparently hid evidence that he was medically unfit to fly, it emerged today. German prosecutors said they had found torn-up doctor’s notes at Andreas Lubitz’s home, including one covering the day that he is believed to have flown 149 people into a mountain in the French Alps. Although the prosecutors did not reveal whether Lubitz’s illness was mental or physical, other reports in the German...

Germanwings plane crash: The Facebook images that hid the secrets of Andreas Lubitz

27 March 2015 21:44:16 WN.com - World News

Wearing a trendy striped scarf, bronzed and posing nonchalantly in front of the Golden Gate bridge, Andreas Lubitz looks more like a male model in a Lufthansa “Fly with us to San Francisco” advert than the aviation company’s first ever mass-murdering co-pilot. The photograph, along with other images showing the slim and athletic 27-year-old running a marathon, derive mostly from his Facebook site. Yet the success story they try to tell, it appears, was full of gaping, unmentionable holes. Lubitz ended up with secrets he was too ashamed to reveal to his employers, and it seems almost certain that they had a major influence on his behaviour. Born and raised in the small provincial town of...

British Museum offers to lend Elgin Marbles back to Greece

27 March 2015 21:44:16 WN.com - World News

The British Museum has offered to discuss lending the so-called Elgin Marbles back to Greece, after the UK rejected a request to take part in a United Nations mediation process about the contentious ownership of the 2,500-year-old sculptures. Britain’s rejection of arbitration talks brokered by the global heritage body Unesco could trigger legal action by Athens in an international court in an attempt to reclaim the ancient sculptures, depending on the outcome of advice from its team of high-profile lawyers including Geoffrey Robertson QC and Amal Clooney. But in a letter to Unesco, Sir Richard Lambert, the chairman of the British Museum’s board of trustees,...
