Barack Obama on Friday visited Hiroshima, becoming the first sitting US president to visit the site of the world's first nuclear bombing, and said the memory of the thousands who perished must never fade. Obama also met with survivors of the August 1945 bombing and hugged a 79-year-old survivor. "Seventy one years ago on a bright cloudless morning, death fell from the sky and the world was changed," Obama said at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. He was accompanied by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Credit: Reuters
