Pakistan: Roads in Peshawar to be named after school carnage victims
The KP Assembly also unanimously approved an amendment bill regarding the security of the sensitive and very sensitive places in Peshawar.

Peshawar: Roads in Peshawar will soon be named after a Pakistani school boy, who sacrificed his life while preventing a suicide bomber from entering his school, and the students killed in the last month's Taliban school massacre.

The provincial legislature in northwest Pakistan unanimously approved the resolution naming the roads in the city after Aitzaz Hassan, who was killed in Hangu district in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on January 6 last year, and the students who lost their lives in the Taliban attack on an army school on December 16.

The resolution was moved by Nighat Orakzai of Pakistan People's Party (PPP) after the session started.

16-year-old Aitzaz sacrificed his life while preventing a suicide bomber from entering his school of 2,000 students at Ibrahimzai village of Hangu district in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Aitzaz's action to save his classmates captured the hearts of many in Pakistan, and he was hailed as a national hero. He was named as the Herald's Person of the Year for 2014.

The KP Assembly also unanimously approved an amendment bill regarding the security of the sensitive and very sensitive places in Peshawar.
