The funeral of the Polish president, who was killed in a plane crash last week, could be delayed as ash clouds from a volcanic eruption in Iceland might prevent other world leaders from coming to pay their last respects.

The funeral of the Polish president, who was killed in a plane crash last week, could be delayed as ash clouds from a volcanic eruption in Iceland might prevent other world leaders from coming to pay their last respects.

The funeral for late Polish President Lech Kaczynski and his wife Maria is scheduled for Sunday.

"If there are no opportunities for the foreign guests to arrive and for us to transport the president and the first lady's bodies to Krakow, it might affect the scheduled ceremonies," Deputy Chief of the Chancellery of the President of Poland Jacek Sasin said.
