Two men found guilty of Malcolm X murder to be exonerated******
Two men found guilty of the 1965 assassination of civil rights leader Malcolm X are to have their convictions thrown out, one of them posthumously, in an admission by US authorities of a historic miscarriage of justice.。
Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance was to hold a press conference yesterday to announce the exoneration of Muhammad A. Aziz and Khalil Islam.。
Aziz, 83, was sentenced to life in prison in 1966 but was released in 1985. Also sentenced to life, Islam was released in 1987 and died in 2009.。
"These men did not get the justice that they deserved," Vance said in an interview with The New York Times. "What we can do is acknowledge the error, the severity of the error."
The newspaper said that a 22-month investigation conducted jointly by the Manhattan district attorney's office and lawyers for the two men found that prosecutors, the FBI and the New York Police Department withheld evidence that would likely have led to the acquittal of the two men.。
A third man, Mujahid Abdul Halim, 80, confessed to Malcolm X's murder and was released from prison in 2010.。
Halim claimed during their 1966 trial that Aziz and Islam were innocent.。
All three were members of the black nationalist group Nation of Islam, which Malcolm X had renounced.。
Malcolm X was shot dead by three gunmen on February 21, 1965 as he prepared to deliver a speech in a Manhattan ballroom. Halim was taken into custody at the scene with a bullet wound to the leg.。
Aziz and Islam were arrested several days later. Both denied involvement in the assassination and provided alibis for where they were at the time of the shooting.。
Aziz said in a statement on Wednesday that "the events that brought us here should never have occurred; those events were and are the result of a process that was corrupt to its core – one that is all too familiar – even in 2021."
"While I do not need a court, prosecutors, or a piece of paper to tell me I am innocent, I am glad that my family, my friends, and the attorneys who have worked and supported me all these years are finally seeing the truth we have all known, officially recognized."
Yesterday's press conference was also to be attended by civil rights attorney David Shanies and Barry Scheck, co-director of the Innocence Project.。
Shanies and the Innocence Project, a nonprofit which has secured the exoneration of hundreds of wrongfully convicted prisoners in the United States, collaborated with Vance's office in re-investigating the case.。
The review of the case followed the release of a Netflix docuseries "Who Killed Malcolm X?"
The Times said the re-investigation did not identify "who prosecutors now believe really killed Malcolm X, and those who were previously implicated but never arrested are dead."
Preview: Pressure on Spanish trio in Tuesday's Champions League ties******
MADRID, Nov. 22 (Xinhua) -- Three Spanish sides play at home in the Champions League on Tuesday night in games they have no option but to win if they want to progress into the knockout stages of the competition.。
FC Barcelona play at home to Benfica in Xavi Hernandez's second game in charge knowing that anything other than a win against the Portuguese side is likely to see them knocked out of the tournament.。
Barca currently have two points more than the side that beat them 3-0 in their first meeting in the group stage, but with a visit to play Bayern Munich in the last group game, it's unlikely they will get anything in the last round of group matches.。
A win would take Barca five points clear and assure their place in the last 16, which is so important to their economy.。
Xavi is still without Ansu Fati, Martin Braithwaite, Sergino Dest and Pedri which limit his options of squad rotating and is again likely to put his faith in the club's youngsters.。
Villarreal are at home to Manchester United in a repeat of last season's Europa League final, with the two sides currently tied on seven points in their qualifying group, with Atalanta just two points behind.。
A win for either team would put them into the next round, but a draw would leave everything open until the last game.。
Manchester United travel with Michael Carrick in temporary charge after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked on Sunday in the wake of their 4-1 humiliation to Watford on Saturday and it's almost impossible to predict how they will play.。
United were dreadful in Watford and have been poor in a lot of games, but Villarreal will be worried that Solskjaer's departure will provoke a reaction from players who have been nowhere near their best form this season and the Spanish club will remember the disappointment of their last-minute defeat in Old Trafford in their first meeting.。
Sevilla are currently bottom of Group G, but still have a decent chance of qualifying given that they are just two points behind Tuesday's rivals Wolfsburg and second place Lille, who play group leaders RB Salzburg in a very close group. Enditem。
