Pakistan honors boy who sacrificed life to foil bombing

Pakistani villagers pray for 17-year-old student Aitzaz Hasan, who residents and police say died this week while trying to stop a suicide bomber who was targeting his school in a remote village in Hangu, Pakistan. Police said a teacher at the school told investigators that he saw Hasan chasing the attacker and then saw the attacker detonate the bomb that killed the teen.
