(JTA) – Survivors of the Hiroshima atomic bomb in Japan protested in Jerusalem against nuclear weapons.

The survivors visited holy sites, including the Western Wall, on Monday, calling for the end of nuclear weapons, The Associated Press reported. They held signs in Japanese that read "Nuclear Abolition."

“Any use of the atom [bomb] should be forbidden, even for intimidation," AP quoted Hiroshima survivor Nagayama Iwao, 69, as saying.
