Kaczynski tributes at Warsaw palace

The body of Polish President Lech Kaczynski is to lie in state in the capital Warsaw as the nation mourns the victims of the Smolensk air crash.

He and 95 others, including many top defence officials and public figures, died when their jet crashed en route to a war memorial service in Russia.

The BBC's Duncan Kennedy describes the scene in central Warsaw, where thousands have converged in front of the presidential palace to pay their respects to the late leader.
