The Polish white-and-red flag has been lowered to half-staff at public buildings as a two-day period of national mourning begins for 16 people killed in a head-on collision of two trains over the weekend.
President Bronislaw Komorowski ordered the days of national mourning to acknowledge the scope of the tragedy, which also injured more than 50 people.
At the site of the collision, just north of Krakow, emergency workers continued to search the area to be certain that no bodies were left in the wreckage of mangled metal and overturned train cars.
The organizers of a range of cultural, sports and entertainment events are scrambling to cancel them to comply with the dictates of national mourning.
The collision occurred late Saturday near the town of Szczekociny.
