    Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the twin brother of the late Polish president, has identified the bodies of Lech Kaczynski and his wife Maria.

    Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the twin brother of the late Polish president, has identified the bodies of Lech Kaczynski and his wife Maria, a member of the Polish parliament said.

    "Jaroslaw Kaczynski has identified the remains of President Lech Kaczynski and his wife Maria Kaczynski," he said.

    The Soviet-made TU-154 carrying Polish President Lech Kaczynski hit the top of trees as it attempted to land at a Smolensk airport in west Russia at 10:50 a.m. (06:50 GMT) on Saturday. There were no survivors among 97 people on board of the plane.

    Kaczynski's wife and a delegation of senior Polish officials, including the chief of the General Staff and the head of the national bank, were also on board.
