Six more members of the Aum Shinrikyo cult that carried out a deadly 1995 sarin attack on Tokyo's subway were executed Friday along with their "guru", Japanese local media reported.

The seven members, including leader Shoko Asahara, were hanged on Friday morning, local media said. A government spokesman confirmed Asahara's death but there was no immediate comment on the others.
