August 6 marks the anniversary of the US dropping the first of two atomic bombs on Japan 69 years ago. Three days later another one was dropped on Nagasaki.
August marks the 60th anniversary of the beginning of the nuclear era with the US;s use of atomic bombs against the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. YUSUF AL-KHABBAZ, who was in Hiroshima for the commemorations, discusses those momentus events and their implications.1
