TOKYO — The leader of the cult accused of carrying out the Tokyo subway attack celebrated afterward, welcoming his disciples back with refreshments and praising them for the nerve-gas killings, prosecutors said yesterday.
On the second day of the trial of Shoko Asahara, a trial that has riveted the nation, prosecutors portrayed him as a cold-blooded killer in a 99-page opening statement.
Asahara is accused of masterminding the March 1995 attack that killed 11.
