    Hiroshima, Japan marked 70 years since the US dropped an atomic bomb on the city during WW2 at 8.15 this morning. Representatives from more than 100 countries attended. Among them was Caroline Kennedy, the US Ambassador to Japan and Under Secretary for arms control, Rose Gottemoeller.

    Shin died the same night but his bicycle was later gifted to the Hiroshima Museum.

    The city of Nagasaki will hold a ceremony to commemorate its bombing Sunday.
