Aum Shrinri Kyo Attack

20 March 1995. Eight people were initially killed and thousands more were injured as Sarin gas suddenly engulfed Tokyo's subway system. The crime was perpetrated by members of Shoko Asahara's millenarian cult, Aum Shrinri Kyo (The Supreme Truth Society), now renamed Aleph.

More on this cult in Rei Kimura's Aum Shrinrikyo: Japan's Unholy Sect and @ religionnewsblog.
