Bodies of thirty crash victims repatriated


The bodies of thirty more crash victims were repatriated today.

An official ceremony to mark the arrival of the remains was held at Warsaw’s military airfield.

Russia’s health ministry says that more than 60 of the 96 people killed have now been formally identified.

Investigators are working around the clock to establish why the aircraft carrying a delegation of Poland’s elite crash landed on the outskirts of Smolensk last Saturday.

The pilot reportedly ignored air traffic controllers instructions to divert because of bad weather.

The black box flight recorders have already been recovered but teams are continuing to sift through the wreckage for clues.

Initial findings are expected to be announced within the next three days.
