President Obama Makes History, Confronts the Past at Hiroshima


U.S. President Barack Obama made history Friday by walking through Hiroshima’s Memorial Peace Park with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Hiroshima is the city where an American warplane dropped the world's first atomic bomb on August 6, 1945, during World War Two, killing tens of thousands and subjecting a generation to radiation sickness. VOA’s Cindy Saine was on the scene to witness the solemn ceremony.
