— Four Russian soldiers have been charged with stealing bank cards from the wreckage of the plane crash that killed Polish President Lech Kaczynski and 95 others, prosecutors said Tuesday.

The soldiers used at least one of the cards to withdraw about $2,000, the federal Investigative Committee said in a statement.

The thefts had angered Poles, who were insulted that someone would try to profit from a crash that wiped out much of their nation’s military and civilian leadership.
