Suicide Over School Uniform

Kamran Khan, 13, from Peshawar, Pakistan set himself on fire because his parents could not afford to buy him a new school uniform. The youth suffered burns on 65 percent of his body. He was taken to an army-run hospital. But the family could only raise one-tenth of the roughly $5,500 they needed for his treatment. He died of his injuries.
