In the five coordinated and well planned attacks, the perpetrators released sarin on several lines of the Tokyo subway killing 13 people, severely injuring 50 and causing temporary vision problems for nearly 1,000 others. The attack was directed against trains passing through Kasumigaseki and Nagatachō, home to the Japanese government. It is the most serious attack to occur in Japan since the end World War II
