Chilling details are emerging behind what appears to have caused a Germanwings flight to crash into the mountains in the French Alps, killing everyone on board.
Fox News Radio's Simon Owen has more from London.
The local prosecutor, Brice Robin, saying analysis of the recorder has revealed normal conversations between the pilot and co-pilot as the flight began.
Then, the pilot leaves the cockpit -- perhaps to use the bathroom -- and the co-pilot refuses to let him back in. Even as he pounds on the door.
Prosuecutors saying the co-pilot appears to be conscious and breathing normally -- as he puts the jet into a descent. And he doesn't say a word for the rest of the recording.
He's been named as 28-year-old Andreas Lubitz, with the airline Germanwings for about 18 months. Prosecutors saying he's not known to have links to any terrorist group.
