TOKYO (AFP) – Japan has executed six more Aum Shinrikyo cult members behind the deadly 1995 sarin attack on the Tokyo subway yesterday. Justice Minister Yoko Kamikawa said he ordered the executions after extremely careful consideration. The executions come after authorities hanged “guru” Shoko Asahara and six of his one-time followers earlier this month, after years of being on death row.
