Polish bishops killed

Polish Lutheran bishop Mieczyslaw Cieslar died April 19 in a car accident, returning home from funeral services for the country's president, Lech Kaczynski, killed in a plane crash.

The April 10 plane crash in Russia also took the life of Acting Military Bishop Adam Pilch of the Evangelical (Lutheran) Church of the Augsburg Confession in Poland.

Ishmael Noko, general secretary of the Lutheran World Federation, expressed "deep shock" at the deaths and asked for prayers for the Polish church.
