BBC News are covering a story about jokes made on popular panel quiz QI not going down well with Japanese viewers.
"Panellists made light of the experience of Tsutomu Yamaguchi who survived the Hiroshima atomic bomb in World War II and the Nagasaki one three days later."
Japanese viewers complained to the Japanese Embassy in London.
"The BBC said it was sorry for any offence caused and would be replying shortly to a letter received from the Japanese embassy in London."
This story has also been covered internationally, receiving a lot of attention in Japan too.
