The remains of Polish Solidarity activist Anna Walentynowicz were swapped with the body of another victim, prosecutors said on Tuesday.

Investigators exhumed the two bodies last week after inconsistencies in documents provided by Russia, which oversaw the local investigation of the Smolensk disaster, raised doubts whether the correct remains were passed on to families.

The discovery will likely lead to further exhumations and spark further protests by some Poles over the investigation of the crash, which Russian authorities blamed on the crew of the government Tu-154 on April 10, 2010.
