HIROSHIMA — The Dalai Lama and other Nobel Peace laureates from the last four decades gathered Friday to support the end of nuclear weapons at a hotel a few miles (kilometers) from ground zero of the world's first atomic bomb attack.

The award winners also were focused on the plight of those who couldn't attend the annual World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates — including this year's winner, jailed Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo, and Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar's detained pro-democracy activist who won in 1991.

"Now here, Liu Xiaobao, you see, failed to come here. It is very sad," the Dalai Lama, the Tibetan spiritual leader who won in 1989, told The Associated Press.
