U.S. President Barack Obama will travel to Hiroshima in May 2016 in the first visit by a sitting American president to the site where the U.S. dropped an atomic bomb. Obama's visit will bolster his call for denuclearization and honor victims of the bombing that killed 140,000 Japanese on Aug. 6, 1945. The president's visit had long been anticipated.
