Obama in Hiroshima and Austria's close call (part 1)

This week Japan hosted the G7 summit and Barack Obama became the first sitting US president to visit Hiroshima. In Austria, far-right leader Norbert Hofer narrowly lost the presidential elections to Alexander Van der Bellen of the Greens. And in France, tensions and violence continue to escalate between the government and labour unions and tax authorities have raided the Paris offices of both Google and McDonald's.
