    The Airbus A320 of Lufthansa's Germanwings low-cost airline, en route from Barcelona to Dusseldorf, crashed in southern France on March 25. All 150 people on board died.

    PARIS (Sputnik) – US, Moroccan, British and Argentine citizens were among the victims of the Germanwings Airbus A320 crash in the French Alps, Prime Minister of France Manuel Valls said Wednesday.

    "Everyone is trying to identify the nationalities of the victims. There is one US citizen, one Moroccan national, there are also the English, and the Argentine," Valls said.

    He noted that, ultimately, it was up to Lufthansa and Spanish and German authorities to provide data on the casualties of the plane crash.

    Earlier media reports suggested that mostly German, Spanish and Turkish nationals were on board the aircraft.

    The Spanish crisis cabinet has said there were 49 Spaniards among the victims of the crash.
