French Police Retrieve Victims' Remains From Germanwings Crash Site

SEYNE-LES-ALPES, France (AP) — French police working to recover remains from the Germanwings crash site say so far they have recovered between 400 and 600 pieces of remains from the 150 people who died in Tuesday’s plane crash.

Speaking from the French Alps town of Seyne-les-Alpes, Col. Patrick Touron of the gendarme service said “we haven’t found a single body intact.”

He also said DNA samples have been taken from objects provided by the victims’ families — such as toothbrushes — that could help identify the victims.

Touron also said jewelry and other objects could help in the identification process.
