Obama To Visit Hiroshima On Japan Trip In Late May

US President Barack Obama has decided after some delay to visit Hiroshima on his trip to Vietnam and Japan later this month. He will be the first US president to visit the city since its annihilation by the US in 1945.
Obama will be in Vietnam and Japan from May 21 to May 28, with a Group of Seven summit in Japan lined up for the second part of the trip, the White House said in a statement.
On his 10th visit to Asia during his presidency, Obama will accompany Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to Hiroshima, one of two Japanese cities on which the US dropped nuclear bombs late in the Second World War.
