Highlight Story

A Polish military aircraft bearing the coffin of President Lech Kaczynski arrived in Warsaw on Sunday, a day after he and many members of Poland's elite were killed in a plane crash in Russia.

Acting President Bronislaw Komorowski, Prime Minister Donald Tusk and other officials met the coffin at the military airport after its short flight from Smolensk in western Russia where the crash occurred in thick fog on Saturday.

After a short religious ceremony at the airport, the coffin was due to be driven under military escort to the presidential palace where it will be available for public viewing.
