DW: Polish prosecutors to exhume uncremated victims of Smolensk crash

Polish prosecutors will exhume all uncremated victims' remains of a 2010 jet crash in Russia in which the then president died. The government, it seems, will not quit before it can prove culpability in the tragedy.

Comprehensive post-mortem examinations are "the key to reconstructing the chain of events and establishing the cause of the crash, despite the several years which have passed," the state prosecution said in a statement.

Six of the previously exhumed nine bodies were reportedly wrongly identified, the prosecution added, and re-opening the coffins - which were sealed in Russia - was necessary to confirm all identities, it said.

Lech Kaczynski, the then president and twin brother of Poland's most powerful current politician, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, was killed in the crash in April 2010, as were the first lady, army commanders, the central bank head and other top state officials among a total of 96 dead.
