A Polish military prosecutor defends a military investigation into a plane crash that killed Poland's president two years ago. But Mikolaj Przybyl cuts the news conference short, saying he needs a break -- and seconds later shoots himself. Reporters found him lying in a pool of blood -- a single gunshot wound to the head. Rescue workers arrive on the scene and carry his body to a waiting ambulance. Officials later said his life was not in danger, and that he's likely to make a full recovery. There was no indication why he took such drastic action. Travis Brecher, Reuters
