Nobel Peace Winners in Japan Argue for Nuke Ban

HIROSHIMA, Japan (AP) - Nobel Peace Prize laureates including
the Dalai Lama are calling for a world without nuclear weapons.
They spoke at a somber ceremony in the Japanese city of
Hiroshima, where the first wartime atomic bomb exploded 65 years
ago.
The peace prize winners laid a wreath of flowers and bowed their
heads at a monument to the victims of the atomic attack as
Hiroshima's eternal Peace Flame burned in the background.
Concluding a three-day meeting of peace prize winners, the Dalai
Lama said "Past is past, now we must look forward." The Tibetan
spiritual leader said dialogue is the only way to solve problems.
The annual World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates assembles past
award recipients to call attention to their achievements and push a
message of human rights and nonviolence.
