|Japan holds ceremony to mark 70 years since devastating Nagasaki atomic bomb |
Japan has marked the 70th anniversary of the atomic bomb that devastated the city of Nagasaki with a ceremony attended by Japanese dignitaries, survivors and guests from 75 countries.
They gathered at Nagasaki Peace Park and held a minute's silence at exactly 11:02am, the time the bomb exploded over the city on August 9 1945. Over 70,000 people were killed.
The first atomic bomb in Hiroshima three days earlier left 140,000 residents dead.
