Just came across a good article on the BBC website: “Dag Hammarskjold: Was his death a crash or a conspiracy?” It was posted last Saturday, the 17th, timed for the 50th anniversary of Hammarskjold’s death–in a plane crash in Congo on Sept. 18, 1961. He was at that time the secretary-general of the U.N. and was on a peace-making mission in Congo. The article mentions two investigations that have been recently undertaken by persons wanting to look at the case when fresh eyes. One, a “British academic” by the name of Susan Williams, has just released a book on her investigation, entitled Who Killed Hammarskjold?
There’s no good way to give you a synopsis of the article, but the title says enough to clue you in. All the mystery, clues, and witnesses of a TV crime drama, with the bonus that it’s a true case and has never been settled. Take a look and see what you think. (Photo: UN/DPI)
