Relatives, dignitaries mourn Germanwings victims at Cologne Cathedral

The families of the victims of Germanwings flight U9525 that went down in the French Alps last month have gathered for a memorial service in Cologne. All 150 people on board the Airbus A320 were killed in the crash.

Around 500 of the 1,500 guests expected to attend the main memorial service in Cologne’s Gothic cathedral are relatives of the passengers and crew members who died when the plane crashed into a mountainside on March 24.

Among them were the relatives of the 16 high school students and their two teachers from the town of Haltern am See, who were on the flight from Barcelona to Düsseldorf after taking part in an exchange program in Spain.

Several dignitaries, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, President Joachim Gauck, as well as members of the Spanish and French cabinets are also attending the memorial service.
