TOKYO, June 15 (AP/UNB) - Japan's public broadcaster says police have arrested the last fugitive suspected in a doomsday cult's deadly nerve gas attack on Tokyo subways 17 years ago.
NHK says Katsuya Takahashi, 54, a former member of Aum Shinrikyo cult, was arrested Friday on suspicion of murder in the 1995 attack.
He had been spotted earlier in the day at a comic book cafe in downtown Tokyo. NHK says he was arrested after a cafe employee called police.
Police had been closing in on Takahashi since the arrest of another wanted cultist earlier this month.
Takahashi was on Japan's most wanted list for his alleged role in the attack, which killed 13 people and injured more than 6,000.
