Obama to make historic visit to Hiroshima

The Atomic Bomb Dome was the only structure not obliterated in the Hiroshima bombing and serves as a memorial to the 140,000 victims of the 1945 attack at the end of WWIIBarack Obama will this month become the first sitting US president to visit Hiroshima, but the White House is scotching talk of an apology for the devastating 1945 nuclear bombing of the city. Obama, accompanied by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, will make the deeply symbolic visit on May 27, after attending a G7 summit in south-central Japan, his spokesman Josh Earnest said Tuesday. On August 6, 1945, the US dropped the world’s first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, killing around 140,000 people, including those who survived the explosion itself but died soon after from severe radiation exposure.
