Hundreds of people are holding a candlelight vigil in central Warsaw to honor the late Polish president and 95 others killed in plane crash five months ago.
Among the mourners is Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the twin brother of Lech Kaczynski, whose plane crashed in Russia on April 10.
The mourners _ carrying candles, torches and national flags _ attended a Roman Catholic Mass and then streamed past the presidential palace while praying and singing religious songs.
They also demanded a monument to the victims be built in front of the palace, a contentious issue that has pitted secular and conservative Catholic Poles against one another.
