Hammarskjold's death investigated by experts
The Swedish UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold died in a mysterious airplane crash over 50 years ago. The accident led to a number of conspiracy theories, and now an international group of lawyers will investigate his death again.
Dag Hammarskjöld was the second Secretary-General of the United Nations, serving from 1953 to his death in 1961. He is viewed by many as the most effective leader the UN has ever had, and was posthumously awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. The Swedish diplomat died when his plane crashed into a forest near Ndola, in what is now Zambia, Africa. In spite of three investigations, nobody has been able to figure out what caused the crash. Wednesday the group of lawyers met to pick up the case again in order to find out “the entire truth” with what happened with Hammarskjöld.
Dag Hammarskjöld’s death investigated – again. Nobody knows for sure why his plane crashed in Africa in 1961.
