Men found guilty of assassination of Malcolm X to have convictions quashed

BBC, 18 Nov 2021
Two men convicted of the 1965 murder of US civil rights leader Malcolm X are to have their convictions quashed.

Muhammad Aziz and Khalil Islam did not get the justice they deserved, the Manhattan District Attorney said.

Prosecutor Cyrus Vance Jr said the FBI and police had withheld evidence that would have likely resulted in their acquittal.

Malcolm X was shot dead aged 39 at a New York City ballroom in front of his family.

Aziz and Islam - along with a third man, Thomas Hagan - were convicted of the murder, and sentenced to life in prison.
