A 78-year-old atomic bomb survivor of Hiroshima who has worked as a translator and peace activist for some 35 years is calling on the Group of Seven foreign ministers to face the terror of nuclear weapons and have the determination to abolish them.

The atomic bomb hit Hiroshima when Keiko Ogura, 8 years old at the time, was near her home about 2.4 km from ground zero. She recalls that a flash and blast came from a cloudless sky, and suddenly everything was in complete darkness because of rising dust and debris.
