A small chapel has been completed to enshrine part of a wooden statue of the Virgin Mary that was destroyed in the atomic bombing of Nagasaki.

The chapel in Urakami Cathedral was opened with a ceremony Tuesday, the same day the city held its annual ceremony on the 60th anniversary of the attack.

The United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima on Aug. 6, 1945, and another on Nagasaki three days later.
