Hiroshima: John Kerry arrived in Japan on Sunday to attend a Group of Seven meeting in Hiroshima, marking the first ever visit to the atomic-bombed city by a US secretary of state.

Kerry arrived at a US military base west of Hiroshima from Afghanistan for the two-day G7 gathering set to discuss a host of global issues including terrorism, Ukraine and North Korea, though the symbolism of his visit is overshadowing the broader diplomatic agenda.
