(Poland lost their president and chief military officers, today, in a plane crash.
The 26-year-old presidential plane carrying 97 people, tried, unsuccessfully, to land in thick fog over Russia.
Persons on the plane included Polish President - Lech Kaczynski, his wife - First lady Maria Kaczynska and staff.
They were being transported to events marking the 70th anniversary of the massacre in Katyn forest of thousands of Polish officers by Soviet secret police).
