Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Mem­bers of Greek Peace Com­mit­tee (EEDYE) gath­ered be­neath the Acrop­o­lis yesterday to mark the 70th an­niver­sary of the world’s first atomic bomb be­ing dropped on Hiroshima in Ja­pan. The Hiroshima bomb­ing, which killed 140,000 by the end of 1945, was fol­lowed by the atomic bomb­ing of Na­gasaki on Au­gust 9, which killed about 40,000 in­stantly. The Sec­ond World War ended on Au­gust 15, 1945. EEDYE called for a ban on all nu­clear weapons, say­ing that their threat ‘con­tin­ues to hover over the world.’
