Hibakusha Share Joy over Nobel Prize for ICAN

(Jiji Press)

Hibakusha atomic bomb victims shared delight on Monday over the selection of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, or ICAN, as the recipient of the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize.
"I'm really happy," Michiko Hattori, 88, who experienced the U.S. atomic bombing of Hiroshima, western Japan, on Aug. 6, 1945, said at a meeting in Tokyo held by Peace Boat, a Japanese nongovernmental organization that takes part in ICAN's activities.
"We cannot coexist with nuclear weapons, which are inhumane. They must not be allowed to exist in the world," Hattori said.
Masahiko Asano, 84, who was exposed to radiation from the atomic bombing of Nagasaki, southwestern Japan, on Aug. 9, 1945, said, "I was surprised but delighted."
Asano said he wants the Nobel Prize to be given to Terumi Tanaka, 85-year-old co-leader of the Japan Confederation of A- and H-Bomb Sufferers Organizations, or Nihon Hidankyo, which failed to win the prestigious prize.
