Washington: US President Barack Obama was briefed early Tuesday on a plane crash in the French Alps that killed 150 people, the White House said.

Obama`s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism Lisa Monaco appraised the president about the Germanwings Airbus 320 crash.

"There is no indication of a nexus to terrorism at this time," National Security Council spokesperson Bernadette Meehan said.

She said, "US officials have been in touch with French, German, and Spanish authorities and have offered assistance."

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families and loved ones."
