    It appears he was targeted despite decades of service to ordinary afghan people.

    Quote from:
    Japanese doctor Tetsu Nakamura, killed Wednesday in an attack in Afghanistan, devoted 35 years of his life to healing Afghans and Pakistanis and eventually became an honorary citizen of his adopted home.

    Quote from:
    UN in #Afghanistan condemns and expresses its revulsion at the killing today of respected Japanese aid worker Dr. Tetsu Nakamura in #Jalalabad. A senseless act of violence against a man who dedicated much of his life to helping most vulnerable Afghans #NotATarget

    documentary on his work:

    Nakamura first arrived in the region in 1984 as a volunteer with the Japan Overseas Christian Medical Cooperative Service at the Mission Hospital in Peshawar Pakistan serving patients with leprosy and Afghan refugees,  intending to stay in Peshawar for five to six years. Beginning in 1991, Nakamura opened 3 clinics to provide medical service in Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan, where he identified malnutrition as a root cause for the health issues in the region. From then onwards, he broadened the scope of his work into agriculture and irrigation, and focused on building canal projects in eastern Afghanistan.

    Starting from 2000, a drought hit the region. A consequence of this drought was the multiplications of diseases due to malnutrition and lack of water. Nakamura stated about this situation: "One irrigation canal will do more good than 100 doctors!". Starting from 2003, Nakamura started building an irrigation canal in the Khewa District (Kuz Kunar) of Nangarhar Province, the Marwarid Canal. The canal gets water from Kunar River, and has a length of 25.5 km.[8] He drew inspiration from the irrigation canals that had been built in his native Fukuoka more than 200 years ago, without the aid of modern equipment.[9]

    As of 2016, Nakamura had built or restored 8 additional canals, irrigating 16,000 hectares and supporting the livelihood of 600,000 people in the Gamberi Desert region.

    Nakamura declared, "Weapons and tanks don't solve problems. The revival of farming is the cornerstone of Afghanistan's recovery"

    how many trillion.. billion gillion dollars spent by AMRIKA......RUSSIA....... PAKISTHAN ...ENGLANDSTHAN..;;;;;; ARABSTAN.....HINDUSTHAN,,  in Afghanistan?  and what did they achieve??

    Do not let silence become your legacy  
    I renounced my faith to become a kafir, 
    the beloved betrayed me and turned in to  a Muslim
