Last week’s question
Which United Nations (UN) Secretary-General died in office?

a. Dag Hammarskjöld
b. Kurt Waldheim
c. Trygve Lie
d. U Thant

The correct answer is A. Dag Hammarskjöld was a Swedish diplomat, economist, and author. He became the second Secretary-General of the United Nations in April 1953 and was reelected to a second term in 1957. The night of September 17–18, 1961, Hammarskjöld was en route to negotiate a cease-fire agreement between noncombatant UN forces and Katangese troops in the Congo when his plane crashed near Ndola, Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia). Hammarskjöld and 15 others perished in the crash. He is the only person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize posthumously. Hammarskjöld remains the only UN Secretary-General to die in office
