HAUNTING: Hiroshima survivors’ art to go on show

Artworks by survivors of the 1945 atomic bomb in Hiroshima are to go on show outside Japan for the first time.
The powerful and often disturbing paintings will feature in an exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery next month.
The pictures depict horrific scenes from 6 August 1945, when the first atomic bomb was dropped from a US aircraft during World War Two.
The images were created after a request by Japanese broadcaster NHK in the 1970s and later toured the country.
