German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she would go on Wednesday to the French Alpine region where a German passenger plane crashed killing all 150 people on board.
She said her foreign and transport ministers, Frank-Walter Steinmeier and Alexander Dobrindt, were heading to the area, in a mountain range known as "Les Trois Eveches," later Tuesday.
"I myself will travel there tomorrow to get an impression and speak with the local authorities," she told reporters in Berlin.
