   Nagasaki, Aug. 9 (Jiji Press)--Nagasaki Mayor Tomihisa Taue warned of the growing risk of nuclear weapons being used again in a speech Friday to mark the 74th anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombing of Nagasaki.

   The ceremony was also attended by representatives of 66 countries, including six nuclear powers such as the United States, Russia and China.
