Men convicted of killing Malcolm X are exonerated

Global Report

Two men who for decades maintained their innocence in the assassination of the civil rights leader Malcolm X in 1965 were exonerated after nearly two years of reinvestigation. Muhammad Aziz, now 83, and the late Khalil Islam were convicted in 1966, after a trial in which authorities withheld evidence favourable to the defence. A Manhattan judge dismissed the convictions “I regret that this court cannot fully undo the serious miscarriages of injustice in this case and give you back the many years that you lost,” Ellen Biben said.
