Sad news, Looks like Dr. Nakamura is a Pentaxian too

Read more at: Japan doctor Nakamura killed in Afghanistan provided care for decades - The Mainichi

Japanese physician Tetsu Nakamura, one of six people killed in a shooting in eastern Afghanistan on Wednesday, was a committed aid worker who had for decades provided medical treatment and helped the poor in the borderlands of the country and Pakistan.

I just saw the news on TV and see Dr.Nakamura using a K3 while working in Afghanistan. Pantaxian or not, it sad to see aid worker being targeted by terrorists.

It is always sad to hear of the death of kind and generous people.

Looks like he will be honored in both Japan and Afghanistan.

Thank you for introducing me to his world.

It's so sad getting to know his work under these circumstances. I hope that his example and legacy be remembered and celebrated in both his native and adoptive home countries as a seed of hope for the younger generations to come.

Very sad. Whatever we may feel about combat, the death of those who only want to alleviate suffering is a sad thing.

Sad for any loss of life, moreso for those just helping out.
