Japan marks 70th anniversary of Hiroshima bombing

Hiroshima: Japan on Thursday marks the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. An American B-29 bomber named Enola Gay dropped an atomic bomb, dubbed 'Little Boy', on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, in one of the final chapters of World War II. Nearly everything around it was incinerated, with the ground level hit by a wall of heat up to 4,000 degrees Celsius -- hot enough to melt steel. About 140,000 people are estimated to have been killed in the attack, including those who survived the bombing itself but died afterwards due to severe radiation exposure. On August 9, the port city of Nagasaki was also attacked with an atomic bomb, killing more than 70,000 people. This disaster affected many more generations.
