  • Hiroshima marks 74th anniversary of atomic bombing

Seventy-four years since the first atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, the mayor of the iconic city has implored Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to sign a United Nations treaty banning nuclear weapons.

Matsui further stated that Abe should represent the survivors of the bombing and sign a United Nations nuclear weapons ban treaty.
