A man who had been in a coma since last year’s nerve gas attack on Tokyo’s subway system has died, raising the official death toll to 12.
Several thousand more people were injured in the March 20, 1995, attack on five crowded Tokyo subway lines. One death is not included in the official tally because the connection with the subway gassing could not be confirmed.
The latest victim, 52-year-old Mitsuo Okada, died in a hospital, Tokyo police said.
