Alps Germanwings crash: Co-pilot was 'aggressive'

A former girlfriend of the pilot who crashed an airliner in the French Alps is quoted as telling German newspaper Bild that Andreas Lubitz could "be aggressive".

The woman, who was an air stewardess and met the pilot through work last year.

She also said if Mr Lubitz deliberately brought down the plane, "it is because he understood that because of his health problems, his big dream of a job at Lufthansa, as captain and as a long-haul pilot was practically impossible".

The journalist who interviewed her, John Puthenpurackal, spoke to the BBC.
