Al Jazeera takes a look at the state of nuclear weapons in the world and the push for non-proliferation this month.

The United States is the only country to have used a nuclear bomb in war. In 1945, it dropped nuclear weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan.

But history's first victims of a nuclear bomb were US citizens caught in the radiation field of a test bomb in New Mexico.

Al Jazeera's Heidi Zhou-Castro reports.
