Hiroshima 70th Anniversary: Japan Renews Push for Nuclear Arms Ban
Japan marked the 70th anniversary of Hiroshima, the atomic bombing that took place in 1945, on Thursday. Mayor Kazumi Matsui renewed calls for U.S President Barack Obama and other world leaders to continue to increase efforts toward eliminating nuclear weapons from the world, reported USA Today.

Matsui called for the abolishing of nuclear weapons, calling them "the ultimate inhumanity and evil," and criticized those still using them to achieve their own national interests.

Thousands of people participated in the anniversary and stood for a minute of silence at 8:30 a.m. at Hiroshima's peace park, which is located at the epicenter of the 1945 attack. The first bombing killed 140,000 people while the second bombing, which took place over Nagasaki three days after the initial attack, killed another 70,000.
