Elzbieta Zawacka, who crisscrossed Nazi-occupied Europe to carry messages between Poland's exiled government and its resistance forces during World War II, died Saturday. She was 99.

In 1951, the newly-imposed communist authorities falsely accused Zawacka of espionage and treason. Tortured by the secret security forces, she was given a 10-year prison term, but was released in 1955.
