Nagasaki mayor marks 72nd anniversary of atomic bombing

Nagasaki
Nagasaki's mayor marked the 72nd anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombing in his city Wednesday by demanding Japan join a recently adopted U.N. treaty banning nuclear weapons.


The anniversary came one day after U.S. President Donald Trump vowed to respond to North Korea's continuing nuclear weapons threats with "fire and fury like the world has never seen." And North Korean military threatened a missile strike near the U.S. territory of Guam

"A strong sense of anxiety is spreading across the globe that in the not too distant future these weapons could actually be used again," Nagasaki Mayor Tomihisa Taue told the crowd at the city's Peace Park that included dignitaries, and survivors and relatives of victims of the bombing.
