Relatives of the 150 people who died in this week's Germanwings plane crash placed flowers at a plaque unveiled in memory of the deceased.
The families, most of them from Spain and Germany, traveled Thursday from Marseille to the southwestern French village of Le Vernet, close to the site where the tragedy took place.
Relatives lay flowers in front of the monument in homage to the victims of Germanwings Flight 4U 9525 in Le Vernet, southeastern France, 27 March 2015. Germanwings Flight 4U 9525, carrying 144 passengers and six crew members from Barcelona, Spain to Dusseldorf, Germany, crashed 24 March in the French Alps, where searchers combed a 4-hectare section of mountain face since 25 March. The co-pilot deliberately crashed the aircraft, French officials said on 26 March. EFE/Alberto Estevez
