ICWS Senior Research Fellow offers new evidence about the death of UN secretary-general Dag Hammarskjöld

Monday 22 December 2014

Dr Susan Williams, ICWS senior research fellow, has been quoted in a Guardian story about a possible new United Nations inquiry into the death of the organisation’s secretary-general, Dag Hammarskjöld, in a plane crash in the British colony of Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia). The article, UN poised to open fresh inquiry into 1961 Dag Hammarskjöld crash, said Dr Williams’s 2011 book Who Killed Hammarskjöld? The UN, the Cold War and White Supremacy in Africa, offered new evidence and has helped to cast doubt on the official version of events.
