WARSAW, Poland (AP) - A deputy of Gdansk's slain mayor says he has met with the attacker's mother and that the family needs protection against hate messages.

Mayor Pawel Adamowicz's coffin will lie in state on Thursday and Friday at the Solidarity movement center in Gdansk to allow residents to bid farewell to the official, who was very popular.

President Andrzej Duda and Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki will attend the funeral at the Gothic Basilica in Gdansk on Saturday.
