Atomic bomb killed tens of thousands of Japanese in Hiroshima 70 years ago

August the 6th marks 70 years since the deadly atomic bombing of Hiroshima. The explosion and resulting fallout killed tens of thousands of Japanese. Yet more people were killed in Nagasaki, when a second atomic bomb was dropped by US forces just days later. Many survivors can still vividly recall the horrors of the moment to this day, and memorial ceremonies are held in each city every year.
