President Barack Obama has become the first sitting U.S. president to visit Hiroshima, Japan.
"A flash of light and a wall of fire destroyed a city and demonstrated that mankind possessed the means to destroy itself," Obama said.
His trip comes more than 70 years after the U.S. dropped the atomic bomb on the city, killing 140,000 people.
