Posted Aug 07, 2010 HIROSHIMA, Japan (AP) — The 65th anniversary event at the site of the world’s first A-bomb attack echoed with the choirs of schoolchildren and the solemn ringing of bells Friday as Hiroshima marked the occasion. At 8:15 a.m. – the time the bomb dropped, incinerating most of the city – a moment of silence was observed. On Aug. 6, 1945, during World War II, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan.
