Two Men Who Were Convicted Of The Murder Of Malcom X Have Been Found Innocent

In 1965, Malcolm X was shot dead in New York City. Three men were convicted of his murder.

Now, a judge has quashed the convictions of two of the men involved.

Muhammad Aziz and Khalil Islam did not get the justice they deserved,

the Manhattan District Attorney said.

The State Supreme Court said a reinvestigation found “significant evidence that was not

known at the time of the trial” and which would likely have seen the men acquitted.

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

The three men – members of the Nation of Islam political and religious movement – have all since been paroled. Islam died in 2009.
