Japan is observing the 73rd anniversary of the atomic bombing of its southwestern city of Nagasaki today. A ceremony has been planned at the Peace Park this morning to mark the day.

Antonio Guterres will take part in the event, becoming the first United Nations Chief to participate. He will be joined by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the survivors of the attack and the families of victims.

The names of 3,511 hibakusha, who died during the past year, will be added to the victims' roster and placed in the cenotaph.

Participants will observe a minute of silence at 11:02 AM - the exact time the bomb was dropped by the US on 9th August 1945.
