Spy messages could finally solve mystery of UN chief’s death crash

All but one on board died in the crash. A 16th passenger, Sergeant Harold Julien, the acting chief security officer, died as a result of injuries a few days later, having told medical staff he had seen “sparks in the sky” shortly before the crash.

Several people who attended the crash scene claimed the Albertina was riddled with bullets. A delay of more than nine hours in locating the plane has triggered speculation that the crash site was interfered with. Several witnesses said they saw between six and eight white men, armed and in combat fatigues, at the crash site.

Then there are lurid claims that some on board, including Hammarskjöld himself, had bullet wounds, suggesting he had survived the crash but had been killed on the spot. His body was found propped up on a termite mound a short distance from the plane, surrounded by playing cards. Reputedly an ace of spades was found on his collar.

In the aftermath, loose-lipped mercenaries claimed that they had played a part in the operation. In 1998 the South African truth and reconciliation commission published intelligence documents suggesting that a bomb had been placed on board. A separate CIA report implicated the KGB.
