Budget airline Germanwings said Wednesday there were at least 72 Germans on its plane that crashed, killing all 150 people aboard, in the French Alps.

Company executive Thomas Winkelmann said there had been, according to the latest estimate, 35 Spanish victims, a figure far lower than the 49 cited by the Spanish government.

Winkelmann said that Germanwings was still working on establishing the nationalities of all the victims, a task complicated by the fact that some passengers had dual nationality.
