Six people including the head of a Japanese NGO were killed on Wednesday after unknown gunmen attacked their vehicle in Jalalabad, the capital city of Afghanistan’s eastern Nangarhar province, officials said.

The gunmen fled the scene and no group has yet claimed responsibility, said Sohrab Qaderi, a member of the provincial council in Nangarhar, Reuters reported.

Dr Tetsu Nakamura, head of Peace Japan Medical Services, was involved in reconstruction work in irrigation and agriculture in the country, he added.
