Policemen and rescuers stand next to a tent used as an DNA extraction centre on March 29, 2015 in front of a commemorative headstone in Seyne-les-Alpes, the closest accessible site to where a Germanwings Airbus A320 crashed on March 24Seyne-les-Alpes (France) (AFP) - Investigators sifting through the wreckage of the doomed Germanwings plane in the French Alps were forced Monday to resume the hunt on foot as bad weather hampered helicopter flights. "The teams will get to the site via the path that is already in existence," said Yves Naffrechoux of the local mountain police. Authorities are hoping to identify more DNA strands from the 150 people who died in Tuesday's crash, as well as locate the jet's second black box that should provide more clues as to the circumstances of the tragedy. Forensic teams have isolated almost 80 distinct DNA strands from the pulverised aircraft and have described the grim task as "unprecedented" given the tricky mountain terrain and the speed at which the plane smashed into the rock.
