Abstract:

Dag Hammarskjöld, UN Secretary-General from 1953 to 1961, met his death in a mysterious plane crash while on a mission in Katanga. Although officially seen as an accident, the circumstances in which the plane crashed, the general hostility against the UN at the time in the region, and the many financial and political interests at stake in that part of Africa during the Cold War, all seem to point now to the fact that his death could have suited many and that he was actually assassinated.
