Air crash coffins come home

The coffins of 15 of the 16 high school students killed in the Germanwings plane crash have left Dusseldorf airport in a hearse convoy accompanied by a police motorcade back to the town of Haltern, where the children came from.

Police said the convoy is expected to arrive in Haltern in western Germany around 3pm today. All 150 people on board the Germanwings were killed when it smashed into the French Alps in March. Co-pilot Andreas Lubitz is believed to have deliberately crashed the Airbus A320.
