These are NOT in english and I think they could be reliable. Can any one translate?

I have to remove them from the article for the moment because I cannot verify these sources. Jason Safoutin 20:42, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

Can someone verify TVP for me? Its not in english... Jason Safoutin 23:20, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

In general the English wikinws article here looks similar to the polish version: pl:Katowice:_Zawalił_się_dach_hali_targowej - i'm likely to sleep now, but here are a few quotes from the TVP article - note that copyright means that literal translation is a violation of copyright, so anyone wanting to add this to the main article should write this information in his/her own style of expressing things:

  • Co najmniej 12 osób zginęło w wyniku zawalenia się dachu jednego z pawilonów na terenie Międzynarodowych Targów Katowickich. Wewnątrz mogło być od 500 do 1000 uczestników wystawy gołębi – poinformowała policja. Do szpitali odwieziono około 100 rannych.
    • At least 12 people died... Inside there may be between 500 and 1000 participants of the exhibition, said police. 100 injured people have gone to hospital.
  • Prezydent Lech Kaczyński postanowił przekazać milion złotych z budżetu Kancelarii Prezydenta na pomoc dla rodzin ofiar tragedii w Katowicach
    • President Lech Kaczyński promised a million złotys (about 250,000 euros) from the President's Office to help the families of the victims.

People on polish wikinews should be able to more or less handle English - try registering there and asking politely on the Dyskusja (Discussion) page. Boud 02:33, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Well if thats the extent of the sources, then we have updated sources with the 20 deaths report. So if it can be addded in english, trhen I will be happy to add them in. Jason Safoutin 02:39, 29 January 2006 (UTC)
In fact, my translation is not literally word-for-word, so i think that with the necessary changes for integrating into the article, i don't think there should be any worry about copyright, since there's not much more possibility of changing the wording without changing the meaning (which is not protected by copyright). So you can grab what i've translated and integrate it (grammatically) into the article.
BTW, happy is not quite the right word here. Chances are noone i know died there, but it's not exactly happy... i hope there's a *&^$*&^^@#@$ good enquiry into finding out who failed to do the engineering/safety studies and recommendations for use of the building. This could be something like a 911 or Madrid-bombings - Polish version - in terms of waking people up, except that the incompetence clearly is local, not international... Anyway, enough off-topic stuff. Boud 02:51, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

there are some good photos (pre-event) on pl:Katowice: Zawalił się dach hali targowej but you have to find out how to link to them - or repost them on wikicommons. or ask for help on pl:Dyskusja:Katowice: Zawalił się dach hali targowej. Boud 02:54, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Unfortunately if they are copyright, we cannot post them on Wikinews :( Jason Safoutin 02:58, 29 January 2006 (UTC)
