President's Body Returned to Warsaw

President Lech Kaczynski's remains have been returned to Poland's capital, following the tragic plane crash that took the lives of 97 people, many of whom were high-ranking in Poland's political and military leadership. The remains of the other victims were flown to Moscow for forensic investigations, but Kaczynski was returned to his country with full military dignity. A quiet crowd of tens of thousands came out to watch the processional, at one point breaking out into song to honor him with the Polish national anthem: "Poland has not yet perished... as long as we still live."
