Tributes have been pouring in for a Pakistani teenager who was killed on Monday when he tackled a suicide bomber targeting his school in the Hangu area.
Aitzaz Hasan, 15, was with friends outside school when they spotted a man wearing a suicide vest.  Despite the pleas of his fellow students, he decided to confront and capture the bomber who then detonated his vest, his cousin told the BBC.

Aitzaz is being hailed as a hero in an outpouring of praise on social media.

My oldest son is 15.

It's heart-breaking to know this world is a place where someone just like him has to make the decision to do something like this.

Embrace the impossible.

That boy really deserves a high recognition in his honor. I'm amazed by his actions. You don't see or read about that very often.
