COLOGNE, Germany — Two Americans were on Flight 9525 that crashed in the French Alps, according to the CEO of Germanwings.

Among the two Americans, plane victims also included 72 German citizens, 35 Spaniards.

France’s interior minister says the plane’s cockpit voice recorder is damaged, but believed to be usable in the investigation.

There is no hope for survivors among the 150 passengers and crew, and poor weather conditions are slowing down the search.

The plane disintegrated on impact, leaving no pieces bigger than a small car.

Investigators want to know why the plane descended from cruising at 38,000 feet to around 6,000 feet with no distress call.

President Obama offered condolences for the tragedy.
