Japanese police have found evidence of sarin nerve gas at a building owned by thereligious cult suspected in the Mar. 20 Tokyo subway attacksthat killed 11 people and injured about 5,000 others, according to media reports. A chemical called methylphosphon acid monoisopropyl, which can only be created when sarin decomposes, was found in a laboratory that belongs to the Aum Shinri Kyo (Supreme Truth) sect on Friday, NHK television and the Yomiuri newspaper said. Though police have so far found chemical stockpiles that include all the ingredients of sarin, sophisticated laboratory equipment, secret plants and documents, they have yet to find enough evidence to pin the attacks on the cult.The cult continues to deny any involvement.
