Polish President Killed En Route to Katyn Memorial

Relations between Poland and Russia have been tense in part because of a perceived reluctance by Vladimir Putin to acknowledge and apologize for the Katyn forest massacre. But this week the President of Poland flew to Russia to participate in a ceremony to commemorate the event. I don't imagine the death of the President of Poland Lech Kaczynski, his wife and other high-ranking officials in a plane crash in Russia will help relations very much.
