The co-pilot suspected of deliberately crashing a Germanwings plane in the French Alps had informed his employer that he had undergone a "previous episode of severe depression", Lufthansa said Tuesday. The airline, which owns Germanwings, said 27-year-old Andreas Lubitz had told the company in 2009 about his illness after interrupting his flight training. Lufthansa added that it had handed additional documents, especially medical and training documents, to prosecutors in the western city of Duesseldorf after "further internal investigations". The airline had until now only said that Lubitz had interrupted his training for several months six years ago but its chief Carsten Spohr had not provided an explanation as to why he did so.
