1995: In Tokyo, 13 people are killed and more than 1,000 others are sickened when packages containing the nerve gas sarin are released on five separate subway trains. The terrorists belonged to the Japanese doomsday cult Aum Shinrikyo. Six of the attack's perpetrators were sentenced to death and three more received life sentences.
