Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has recommended a bravery award for a teenager killed when tackling a suicide bomber who targeted his school, in north-western Pakistan.

Aiti-zaz Hasan, 15, is being hailed as a hero for confronting the attacker, who then detonated his vest.

The Sitara-e-Shujjat award can only be awarded once Pakistan's president has approved it.

The incident on Monday prompted an outpouring of praise and gratitude across Pakistan.

A statement from the prime minister's office said that Shaheed Aiti-zaz's brave act saved the lives of hundreds of students and established a sterling example of gallantry and patriotism.
