Germanwings CEO gives latest victim breakdown, two Americans on board

Posted:
(AP) -- Germanwings' chief executive says the airline's current information is that 72 Germans, 35 Spanish citizens and two Americans were on board the flight that crashed in southern France.

Thomas Winkelmann told reporters in Cologne on Wednesday that the list isn't yet final because the company is still trying to contact relatives of 27 victims.

Winkelmann says in some cases victims' nationality isn't entirely clear, in part because of dual citizenship.

There were two victims each from Australia, Argentina, Iran and Venezuela. One victim each came from Britain, the Netherlands, Colombia, Mexico, Japan, Denmark, Belgium and Israel.

Spain's government said they had identified 49 Spanish victims, while Britain says it believes there were at least three Britons on board.
