UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
The first unsolved mystery concerns Dag Hammarskjöld , UN Secretary-General, who was killed when his plane crashed in the former Belgian Congo in September 1961. Now 54 years later a new investigation by a UN Panel of Experts into Hammarskjöld’s death is finally about to start.

The second of the Cold War’s great unsolved mysteries involves Bernt Carlsson , UN Assistant Secretary-General, who was targeted on Pan Am Flight 103 and died at Lockerbie in December 1988. In the intervening 26 years, the UN has not investigated Carlsson’s death.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon should therefore extend the remit of the new UN Inquiry to cover the unsolved mystery deaths of both Dag Hammarskjöld and Bernt Carlsson .
