Update 3 p.m.: Authorities say co-pilot Andreas Lubitz was being treated for depression and concealed this from the airline.


Prosecutors continue to look for more information regarding Andreas Lubitz, the 27-year-old Germanswings co-pilot who is believed to have intentionally crashed an airliner into the French Alps, killing himself and 149 other people.

Evidence collected at his apartment did not include a suicide note or any indication of a motivation, but a German prosecutor said Lubitz apparently tore up a doctor's note excusing him from work on the day of the crash.

Documents also showed that he has a medical condition that he hid from his employer, but whether that condition was mental or physical has not been revealed. Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson speaks with Jason Bellini of The Wall Street Journal for the latest.
