At least 129,000 people were killed in both bombings – ordered by then US president Harry S. Truman – while the radiation caused cancer and birth defects in thousands more.
The Hiroshima bomb was detonated above the city, killing almost 80,000 people immediately.
Thousands more were later killed from radiation poisoning. In total, 90% of the city’s population was destroyed.
The second bomb on Nagasaki killed an estimated 40,000 more people.
Japanese Emperor Hirohito announced his country’s surrender on August 15, six days after the second bomb was dropped.
