A-bomb survivors want Obama to apologize in Hiroshima

(India TV News) A group representing Japanese survivors of US atomic bombings urged President Barack Obama to hear their stories and apologise when he visits Hiroshima next week.

Two leaders of the Tokyo-based nationwide group told a news conference on Thursday that many survivors still want an apology, though they have long avoided an outright demand for one out of fear that it would be counterproductive.

Toshiki Fujimori, a survivor of the Hiroshima atomic bombing, said he found it awkward to hear local and central government officials say they are not asking for an apology.
