Japan pupils' unique history lesson on Hiroshima

Children in the Japanese city of Hiroshima have been taking part in a historical class project.

They have been recovering remnants of a building that stands at the hypocentre of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima at the end of World War Two.

The building, now a memorial, is commonly known just as the Atomic Bomb Dome.

Roland Buerk reports.
