Local church folds 1000 paper cranes for 72nd anniversary bombing of Hiroshima

An allied correspondent stands in the rubble in front of the shell of a building that once was a movie theater in Hiroshima Japan a month after the first atomic bomb ever used in warfare was dropped by the U.S. on Aug. 6 1945

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, speaking at the annual ceremony at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park near Ground Zero, said Japan hoped to push for a world without nuclear weapons in a way that all countries can agree upon.

Since Obama's visit to Hiroshima, Martin said, "tensions between the USA and North Korea are the highest they've been since the Korean War".

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that the would needs to work together to end the need of nuclear weapons.

Hiroshima Mayor Kazumi Matsui, speaking to a crowd of roughly 50,000 people at the Peace Memorial Park, reiterated his calls for disarmament, as he described the sheer horror on August 6 at 8:15am.

White House: Trump 'not discussing' firing Mueller
A grand jury gives prosecutors the ability to subpoena documents and gather on-the-record witness testimonies. Asked if the bill was directed at President Trump, Tillis (R-NC.) didn't hide his concern.

The United States dropped the bomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, killing thousands of people instantly and about 140,000 by the end of that year. The nuclear-armed states, including the USA and North Korea, boycotted the treaty negotiations.

"For us to truly realize a 'world without nuclear weapons, ' the participation of both nuclear weapon states and non-nuclear weapon states is necessary", Abe said, according to The Japan Times. NPR reports that next month member states can sign the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, if it gets ratified.

Japan had refused to surrender despite Nazi Germany waving the white flag three months earlier. Last year, then-President Barack Obama became the first US leader to visit Hiroshima. But regarding nuclear weapons, "We "hibakusha" and our groups share a clear goal, which is to abolish nuclear weapons from the world", Kim said.

"Does President Obama ever discuss the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor while he's in Japan?".

Arsenal Defeats Chelsea In The Community Shield
The Gunners pushed for an equaliser, with Arsene Wenger sending on Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott for Lacazette and Alex Iwobi. But Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois blazed his kick over the crossbar followed by striker Alvaro Morata also missing.

Many do feel that if the Japanese would not have allied themselves with Nazi-Germany, and not attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor, a nuclear bomb may not have been dropped by the Americans anywhere to end the war. But, that was not the case.

Matsui referenced the treaty's adoption, saying that with "this development, the governments of all countries must now strive to advance further toward a nuclear weapon-free world". The day prior to the anniversary at Hiroshima, Saturday, the United Nations Security Council voted unanimously for new sanctions to be imposed on North Korea.

Details of the launch are still unclear but Melissa Hanham, an expert in North Korea's missile program from the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, told The Guardian that she suspected the missile being tested was the same Hwasong-14 projectile that Kim Jong-un's regime had launched on July 4.
