Washington: President Barack Obama offered the United States` condolences on Tuesday after a German airliner crashed in the French Alps en route from Spain, killing 150 passengers and crew.

"It`s heartbreaking because it apparently includes the loss of so many children, some of them infants," Obama said, adding that he had called Germany`s Chancellor Angela Merkel and would call Spain`s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy. 

"Our teams are in close contact, and we`re working to confirm how many Americans may have been on board. Germany and Spain are among our strongest allies in the world."
