Hiroshima survivor's nuclear warning

A survivor of the Hiroshima bomb, has said for US President Donald Trump or North Korea's Kim Jong-un to even contemplate using nuclear weapons was "totally unacceptable moral behaviour".

Setsuko Thurlow was 13 when the bomb dropped.

She was speaking to Hardtalk's Stephen Sackur together with Beatrice Fihn, the executive director of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), which won this year's Noble Peace Prize.

In July, ICAN spearheaded a campaign which led to 122 nations approving an international treaty calling for the prohibition of all nuclear weapons.
