Hiroshima herdenkt explosie atoombom 69 jaar geleden

In de Japanse stad Hiroshima hebben tienduizenden mensen de 69ste verjaardag van de atoombom op Hiroshima herdacht. Die werd op 6 augustus 1945 om 8.15 uur plaatselijke tijd boven de stad gedropt door de Amerikanen. 70.000 mensen kwamen om het leven, nog eens zoveel stierven in de maanden daarna. Drie dagen na Hiroshima volgde een tweede bom, dit keer op Nagasaki, die nog eens 70.000 doden eiste, waarna Japan zich overgaf en de Tweede Wereldoorlog eindigde.

The bombing killed some 140,000 people - some instantly, others within months. Three days later, the U.S. dropped a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, killing an estimated 70,000 people shortly before the end of World War II. Those categorized by the government as sick from the Hiroshima bombing’s radiation still number more than 200,000. (AP Photo/File)AP
