Nagasaki atomic bomb marked in Japan, 70 years on – BBC News
The Japanese city of Nagasaki has marked 70 years since the dropping of an atomic bomb by the United States.
A ceremony at the Nagasaki Peace Park observed a minute’s silence.
Speeches by a survivor and Nagasaki’s mayor both criticised the attending Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for his plans to loosen the restrictions on what Japan’s military can do.
