Pages on the Yahoo Japan web site will display wanted posters for five suspects sought by Japan’s National Police Agency.

Except for the Yahoo Japan home page, other pages on the site will show the posters for suspects associated with the March 1995 sarin attack on the Tokyo subway, and those alleged to have committed murders and violating weapons laws, the Japan Times reported.

Three suspects have ties to the Aum Shinriyko group, which was responsible for the sarin attack. Police want two other suspects, one accused of abduction and murder, the other of violating Japan’s firearm and sword law.

Links from the posters will connect to various prefecture police departments. In July, Yahoo performed a similar service in making a wanted poster for a murder suspect available on its site.

By using Yahoo, the NPA hopes the service’s 13 million members, believed by Yahoo to be the largest in the country, can help crack crimes that are now over 10 years old.
