Tokyo subway officials commemorated the 17th anniversary of Aum Shinrikyo’s deadly 1995 sarin gas attack Tuesday at Kasumigaseki Station.

Twenty-four Tokyo Metro Co. employees observed a moment of silence at the station, one of the subway stations where members of the cult released the deadly nerve agent on March 20, 1995, killing 13 people and sickening more than 6,000 others.
