A bomb is an explosive device. Bombs are governed by international, national, and state laws. Cluster bombing has recently come under attack from critics claiming it cannot distinguish between combatants and civilians and raises a number of important international humanitarian law issues.
Nuclear bombs and disarmament became controversial topics, especially after World War II, on August 6, 1945, when the first uranium bomb killed about 100,000 people in Hiroshima immediately, and nearly that many would die later from burns and radiation sickness. Three days later the first plutonium bomb killed about 75,000 people in Nagasaki, and again about that many would die later.
