Barack Obama is to become the first serving US President to visit Hiroshima, which was hit by an American atomic bomb at the end of the second world war.

He will make the historic visit during a trip to Japan and Vietnam later this month according to the White House.

Around 140,000 people died after the bomb was dropped on the city in 1945.
