Followers of the AUM Shinrikyo religious cult have been hired to staff a new computer sales outlet in Tokyo. However, the scheduled Saturday opening was postponed after a request for a delay was made by the building's landlords. Members of AUM, which now calls itself Aleph, have been convicted for involvement in a 1995 sarin gas attack in the city's subway system that killed 12 people and injured thousands of others. -- ZDNN
