Prosecutor shoots himself at news briefing

A military prosecutor in Poland is in a stable condition after shooting himself shortly after he had cut short a news conference.

He had been defending the actions of a military investigation into media leaks relating to the air crash that killed the Polish president in 2010.

He asked reporters to leave so that he could take "a break". After they had left the room, they heard a bang, and returned to find him on the floor.

The BBC's Adam Easton reports from Warsaw.
