Obama 1st US Hiroshima trip

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

BARACK Obama will travel to Hiroshima this month in the first visit by a sit­ting Yank pres­i­dent to the site where the United States dropped an atomic bomb.

The White House said Pres­i­dent Obama will visit the site along with Ja­panese leader Shinzo Abe.

Mr Obama’s visit will bol­ster his call for de­nu­cle­ari­sa­tion and hon­our vic­tims of the bomb­ing that killed 140,000 Ja­panese on Au­gust 6, 1945.

Last month, US Sec­re­tary of State John Kerry vis­ited the me­mo­rial to the Hiroshima bomb­ing.
