WARSAW, Poland — Thousands of people in the streets of Poland's cities are standing rigid and silent, marking two minutes of silent memorial to those killed in a devastating plane crash.

In front of the presidential palace, hundreds of people stopped what they were doing and stood, some with their eyes closed and heads bowed.

Poland was enveloped in mourning Sunday, to mark the loss of President Lech Kaczynski and 95 others — including many of the country's elite.
