PARIS, May 25 (AFP) - The fourth victim of the roof collapse at the weekend in the ultra-modern new air terminal at Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport was a Lebanese national, a source close to the investigation said Tuesday.

In addition to the 28-year-old Lebanese, the three other victims have been identifed as a 39-year-old Czech woman and two Chinese nationals, a man and woman both age 32.

Three people were lightly injured when the slabs of concrete, metal and glass panelling came crashing down on a boarding area at the airport's Terminal 2E: an Egyptian man and two women from Ivory Coast and China.

Several pieces of US identification were also found in the wreckage, but investigators believe these people probably later returned home using their passports.

"There is little likelihood we'll find anymore victims at this point," said the source.

French prosecutors have opened an investigation into possible involuntary homicide over the collapse.
