Archive: Nerve gas attack shocks Tokyo

Japanese police have arrested the final fugitive they were seeking in connection with a sarin nerve gas attack on the Tokyo subway system that killed 13 people in 1995.

Katsuya Takahashi, a member of the Aum Shinrikyo doomsday cult, had been on the run since the attack, which also injured 6,000.

This report by Katty Kay was first broadcast in March 1995.
