Poland to release details of black boxes


Investigators continue to search for clues amongst the wreckage of the crash site where Polish President Lech Kaczynski, his wife Maria and 94 other members of the country’s elite lost their lives.

The contents of the black box flight recorders recovered from the crash site in Western Russia willbe made public, according to Poland’s chief prosecutor.

It is hoped the data retrieved will provide vital clues as to why the plane crashed while trying to land in thick fog near Smolensk.

About 70 of the victims have now been formally identified, with the majority already repatriated.

This morning, the body of Rysyard Kaczorofski arrived home. The 90 year-old world war two veteran was head of Poland’s government-in-exile during communism.
