MORE CROSSES AT AUSCHWITZ DESPITE GOVERNMENT ACTION

          WARSAW (CWNews.com) - The leader of a grassroots movement to place crosses near the former Auschwitz Nazi death camp said on Tuesday that dozens of new crosses would be placed there despite government action on laws to remove them.

          Kazimierz Switon said 50 new crosses were being placed in the location to bring the total number to 293. Jewish groups have protested the presence of the crosses at what they consider a Jewish cemetery, but Polish Catholics want at least the original, papal cross to remain as reminder of the Catholics who died there.

          Last month, Poland's Senate voted to allow the papal cross to remain, but to remove the others. The bill still needs to be considered by the Sejm lower house.
