BERLIN, April 2. /TASS/. Co-pilot Andreas Lubitz, who is believed to have deliberately crashed Germanwings Airbus-A320 in the French Alps on March 24, researched suicide methods on the Internet, Dusseldorf prosecutors said on Thursday.
German investigators searched the co-pilot's tablet computer and discovered that his latest queries included various suicide methods and cockpit door security, prosecutors said.
"At least once he searched security mechanisms of the cockpit door," prosecutors said.
Germanwings Flight 9525 en route from Barcelona to Dusseldorf crashed in mountainous terrain in the department of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, southern France. All 150 people onboard, including 144 passengers and six crew, died in the crash.
French prosecutors said after recovering the plane's cockpit voice recorder that Lubitz was suspected of bringing down the Airbus after blocking his captain's re-entry into the cockpit. The flight data recorder was discovered earlier on Thursday.
