WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama will travel to Poland to attend funeral services for that country's president, who was killed in a plane crash.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Obama will leave Saturday night for Krakow, Poland, for funeral services on Sunday.
President Lech Kaczynski and his wife will be buried after a state funeral at Krakow's Wawel Cathedral. They were among the dozens of people killed last Saturday when their plane crashed in dense fog in western Russia.
Gibbs said Obama is going to express condolences to an important ally and to show support for the Polish people on behalf of all Americans.
