Rabat - On August 6, 1945 at 8:15 am, a US B-29 aircraft dropped the world’s first atomic bomb used in war upon Hiroshima, a city home to 350,000 people.  Today, 70 years later at 8:15 am, crowds in Hiroshima stood in silence as bells tolled, remembering the victims and the moment that would change history.
