A 17-year-old student has confessed to killing eight students and two teachers, and injuring 13 others.

Sheikh, who had planned to fly home before the Eid festivities, had been flown back in a coffin.

The body of the teenager arrived at cargo complex of Karachi airport this morning from Houston, Texas through a private Turkish airline- TK-708- that was received by family members and officials of US Consulate at the airport, it said.

He told the BBC that he wanted his daughter's death to catalyse a change in United States gun laws.
