German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday that it was difficult to fathom that a co-pilot from airline Germanwings may have deliberately crashed a plane in the French Alps this week, killing 150 people.

"Something like this goes beyond the realms of the imaginable," Merkel said during a brief statement in Berlin.

"This is a terrible burden for the relatives of the victims," she added.
