Lufthansa says that clean-up workers have removed 80 pc of the debris from the site of a plane crash last month in the Alps that killed 150 people.

Lufthansa representative Carsten Hernig said clean-up teams had cleared 35 tons of waste as of Tuesday. Hernig is overseeing the operation to recover pieces of the shattered plane, operated by Lufthansa's low-cost carrier Germanwings.

He said workers will ensure that the debris, including four tons of kerosene and 90 litres of lubricants, are cleared safely and without leaving environmental damage. Prosecutors believe that the co-pilot of Flight 9525 intentionally crashed the flight on March 24.
