Polish election candidate visits twin brother's grave

WARSAW, Poland — Jaroslaw Kaczynski, a leading candidate in Poland's presidential election, interrupted the last day of campaigning Friday to visit the grave of his identical twin — the leader whose death in a plane crash forced the early vote.
He made the visit Friday on his and his brother Lech's 61st birthday, and two days before Poles vote for a new president, on Sunday.
Kaczynski, dressed in black and carrying red and white roses, descended into the crypt of Krakow's Wawel Cathedral, where he placed the flowers at the honey-hued sarcophagus holding his brother and his sister-in-law, Maria. The candidate was joined by Marta, his niece and the first couple's daughter.
