Japan marks 70th anniversary of Nagasaki atomic bomb
August 9 , 2015
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.
