All 96 Polish plane crash victims identified
Two weeks after the plane crash in Russia that killed Polish president Lech Kaczynski, all 96 victims have been identified, reports quoting a senior Russian official said Saturday.
"In the last two weeks a great deal has been accomplished," Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov said, according to the Interfax news agency.
He also reiterated that everything was being done to determine the cause of the crash in Smolensk, western Russia, DPA reported.
On April 10, the pilots of the Tupolev TU-154 attempted to land in heavy fog despite warnings from Russian air traffic controllers.
Experts have ruled out mechanical fault as a cause of the crash.
The presidential plane had been en route to Russia for ceremonies to mark the 70th anniversary of the Katyn massacre, in which Soviet forces killed some 22,000 Polish military officers and other members of the country's ruling elite.
All 96 people onboard the plane where killed, including Kaczynski's wife Maria and high-ranking Polish military officers, government officials and members of the clergy.
