The executive director of a museum in the town of Los Alamos, New Mexico, said Friday that it will not host a traveling exhibition focused on the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as planned due to concerns over the exhibitors' position on the abolition of nuclear weapons.

The exhibition, organized by the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum, aims to educate about the bombings that destroyed the cities toward the end of World War II.

"It is the exhibit's call for the abolition of nuclear weapons that raised concerns," said Heather McClenahan, executive director of the Los Alamos Historical Museum.
