Japan marks 70th anniversary of Nagasaki atomic bomb

  • Seventy years after an atomic bomb devastated Nagasaki, the Japanese city is marking the day that killed more than 70,000 people.

    A minute’s silence was observed at a ceremony at the Nagasaki Peace Park.

    The bomb was dropped by the US three days after the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima.

    In a speech Tomihisa Taue, the mayor of Nagasaki, said there was “unease” about prime minister Abe’s move to dilute post-War constitutional limits to Japan's military.
