ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION On August 9 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Nagasaki. It was an act that led to the deaths of more than 150,000 people, and Japan's surrender that brought World War II to an end. Sixty-eight years later the city has been commemorating the event. Politicians, diplomats, children and elderly survivors gathered at Nagasaki's Peace Park. An official record of Nagasaki's victims is updated annually as more people die from the effects of radiation and old age.
