A 14-year-old student was killed on Monday when he valiantly tried to stop a suicide bomber at the entrance of a high school in the restive Khyber-Pakthunkhwa in northwest Pakistan, saving many lives.


The bomber disembarked from a passenger coach in front of Government High School Ibrahimzai in Hangu district and was heading towards the school building when he was spotted by class 9 student Aitezaz Khan.

The bomber blew himself up when Aitezaz tried to stop him at the main gate of the school, district police chief Iftikhar Ahmed was quoted as saying by the Dawn.

The student was killed on the spot.

Eyewitnesses said that had the bomber detonated himself in the building, the casualties would have been much more.

No group has claimed responsibility for the bombing.
