Pakistan s prime minister announced yester-
day that a teenage boy who sacrificed his life
to stop a suicide bomber who wanted to attack
his school should be honoured with the nation s
highest civil award of bravery.
Aitzaz Hasan, 17, died Monday in a remote
village in Hangu, a district in northwest Khyber
Pakhtunkhwa province. Pakistanis have praised
the boy since his teacher told police that he saw
Hasan chasing the bomber, who detonated his
explosives, killing the teen. The boy has earned
hero status in the country after he died confronting
a suicide bomber at the main gate of his school,
Ninth-grader Bangash was on his way to the
Ibrahimzai School on Monday in Khyber
Pakhtunkhwa province when he was confronted
by the bomber, the boy s cousin, Musadiq Ali
Bangash, told CNN. Witness Rajab Ali said Aitazaz
challenged the bomber and threw a stone at him
as he was trying to enter the school.
Aitazaz grabbed the man, and that s when he
panicked and detonated the bomb, the boys said.
The blast killed Aitazaz and the bomber.
HAVANA---A senior US State Department
official said yesterday that migration talks
with the Cuban government this week have
been productive and yielded "some positive
outcomes," but did not give concrete details
of any agreements or breakthroughs.
Alex Lee, deputy assistant secretary at the
State Department s Bureau of Western Hemi-
sphere Affairs, told reporters that the Obama
administration is open to seeking a new rela-
tionship with Havana, but it should go hand-
in-hand with more political freedom in the
"We at the same time want to have that
opening reflect from the Cuban side a respect
for Cubans who express themselves freely,"
Lee said. "To be able to petition their gov-
ernment with grievances without the danger
of them being arrested. ... In the meantime,
we are working on these sets of rather nar-
rowly defined areas of cooperation."
The migration talks took place Thursday
in the Cuban capital and ranged to cover
other topics of mutual interest for the Cold
War foes, including aviation safety, maritime
search and rescue protocols and consular
Lee said Washington welcomed a year-
old Cuban migratory policy change elimi-
nating a longstanding exit visa requirement
under which islanders had to ask their gov-
ernment s permission to travel abroad.
The migration talks have in the past been
used as a rare chance for dialogue between
two countries that have not had full diplo-
matic relations for decades.
They were suspended in 2011, the same
year Cuba sentenced Gross to prison, but
resumed last July. Cuban and American offi-
cials also met multiple times in 2013 on re-
establishing direct mail service, and Lee said
there have been conversations in areas such
as counter-narcotics cooperation, oil spill
preparation and transportation.
"Despite our historically difficult relation-
ship ... we have been able to speak to each
other in a respectful and thoughtful manner,"
he added. (AP)
