The World

Poland is reeling after Saturday’s plane crash that killed 96 people, including the Polish president, Lech Kaczynski, and many of the country’s top military, parliamentary, artistic and symbolic leaders. The group was traveling to Katyn for a 70 year remembrance of the worst massacre in WWII history.
