Caption: Hiroshima clock. A charred clock, stopped at 8.15 in the morning, the moment when the atomic bomb devastated Hiroshima, Japan, on 6 August 1945. Dropped by the US Air Force, the 'Little Boy' uranium bomb was the first nuclear bomb used in anger. It exploded 580 metres above the city of Hiroshima with a force of 12,500 tons of TNT. It killed 140,000 people by the end of 1945, and a further 60,000 from wounds or radiation sickness by 1950.
