which created the Doomsday clock in 1947, said in a statement read out
as the clock's countdown to midnight was nudged back by one minute from
where it has been since 2007.
"For the first time since atomic
bombs were dropped in 1945, leaders of nuclear weapons states are
cooperating to vastly reduce their arsenals and secure all nuclear
bomb-making material," the statement by the panel of international
scientists, including 19 Nobel laureates, said.
