NY prosecutor to exonerate two over Malcolm X murder

New York (AFP) -

Two men convicted of the 1965 murder of civil rights leader Malcolm X are to have their convictions thrown out, the Manhattan district attorney's office said Wednesday.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance will hold a press conference on Thursday to announce the exoneration of Muhammad A. Aziz and Khalil Islam, his office said.

'These men did not get the justice that they deserved,' Vance said in an interview with The New York Times.

The newspaper said 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 withheld evidence that would likely have led to their acquittal.

Aziz, 83, was released from prison in 1985. Islam was released in 1987 and died in 2009.

A third man, Mujahid Abdul Halim, confessed to the murder and was released from prison in 2010.
