4 Smolensk crash looters to face trial

Four Russian servicemen are due to front a court for pillaging the debris of Polish President Lech Kaczynski’s plane near Smolensk in 2010, Russia’s Investigation Committee said Saturday.

The plane carrying Lech Kaczynski, his wife and a host of Polish high-level officials – a total of 96 people, including the crew, - crashed near the Russian city of Smolensk on April 10, killing everyone.

The crash took the lives of all Polish top ranking figures, who were on their way to Katyn to attend the annual commemoration.
