Spain pledges 'major investigation' of Turkish crashes

Commenting on the triple CN-235 disaster in Turkey, a Spanish embassy official in Ankara pledges to get to the bottom of it.

Spanish embassy spokesman Guillermo Corral tells CNN: "The company will now undertake a major investigation."

Both pilots of the CN-235 that went down on May 18 were Spanish, as was the flight engineer. The fourth crewman who died was a Turkish technician.
