Poland has held a two-minute silent tribute in memory of those who died in a plane crash in western Russia on Saturday.

Polish President Lech Kacyzinski was among the 97 people killed, most of them senior government and military officials.

The entire country came to a standstill just after midday Warsaw time.

Thousands of mourners gathered to say prayers for those who lost their lives, with the flags flying at half mast as a mark of respect.
