>> A family welcomes back one of its children in a coffin. The body of 17-year old Sabika Sheikh arrived home in Pakistan Wednesday. She'd had been on an exchange program to Santa Fe High School where just days ago Dimitrios Pagourtzis opened fire in an art class killing ten people.
Sabika was one of them. Back at home, news of her death had rattled members of her community.>> I'm an old friend of her father, I have no words to express how I feel. It's a great loss to Pakistan. She wanted to do a lot for this country.
>> Sabika had wanted to join the civil services, according to her father, who also says she loved her time in the US. It's a popular destination for young Pakistanis who dream of studying abroad. Recent school shootings though have stoked debates over gun laws and many, including Sabika's father, are calling on Washington to change them.
Last week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo offered his condolences to the bereaved family saying Sabika was helping to build ties between the two countries. She was part of an exchange program funded by the US State Department and planned to return home on the ninth of June in time to mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
