Bangladesh leads Asia in paying homage to Nagasaki bomb victims

That threat followed reports that North Korea had managed to make a nuclear warhead small enough to fit inside its missiles.

A peace bell rang while thousands of people, including ageing survivors and relatives of victims, observed a minute's silence at 11:02 a.m. local time on Wednesday (0202 GMT), the moment that a United States plane dropped the "Fat Man" Plutonium bomb on Nagasaki on August 9, 1945.

Taue criticized the Japanese government, under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for making empty promises over working toward denuclearization of the world.

The first half of the marchers held signs, carried a giant puppet and waved black flags commemorating the anniversaries of when the United States dropped bombs on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 and Nagasaki on August 9, 1945. "A strong sense of anxiety is spreading across the globe that in the not too distant future these weapons could actually be used again".

A solemn procession of Central New York peace activists and community members marched in Downtown Syracuse Wednesday afternoon to remember the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.

"The Japanese government's stance of not even participating in the diplomatic negotiations for the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty is quite incomprehensible to those of us living in the cities that suffered atomic bombings", the Mayor said.

He also urged the central government to reconsider the policy of relying on the US nuclear umbrella and "reaffirm to the world its commitment to the pacifist ethos of the Constitution of Japan, which firmly renounces war". But he said "Japan is determined to lead the worldwide community.by continuing to appeal to both sides" - ones with and without nuclear weapons.

It was at 11:02 a.m., on August 9, 1945 - three days after the United States dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, killing about 140,000 people. Many died immediately while others succumbed to injuries or radiation-related illnesses weeks, months and years later.
