Summary In 1995, the Japanese cult Aum Shinrikyo unleashed terror on the Tokyo subway system with a highly publicized Sarin gas attack. However, less is known about the group's development of biological and chemical weapons and about their prior attacks using these weapons. Through personal interviews and correspondence with former members of Aum Shinrikyo's leadership, the report provides never-before documented information on the terrorist group and its operations. The observations from this study have wide-ranging applications for terrorist groups worldwide
