Nagasaki marks 77th anniversary of atomic bombing

Nagasaki was the 77th anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombing of the southwestern city during World War II, with Mayor Tomihisa Taue calling for the abolition of nuclear weapons amid mounting concern over their potential use following Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Three days after a similar bomb was dropped on Hiroshima around 300 kilometers northeast, the atomic bombing of Nagasaki had killed 74,000 people by the end of 1945, with many others suffering from the effects of burns and radiation-related illnesses long after the attack.
