Row over 'Russian theft' from Polish plane wreck

Breaking News

A row has broken out over claims by Polish investigators that credit cards were stolen from one of the passengers killed when President Lech Kaczynski's plane crashed in Russia in April.

About 6,000 Polish zloty (£2,000) was withdrawn on the cards, investigators say.

Polish officials say several Russian policemen or soldiers have been arrested.

But Russia has denied that both the theft and the arrests took place.

On Monday Monika Lewandowska, a spokeswoman for Warsaw prosecutors, said that the first withdrawal on the two stolen cards was made about two hours after the crash, in the city of Smolensk, where the Polish government plane crashed on 10 April.
