Boko Haram release video “showing kidnapped girls”

    More than 200 girls/women were abducted by Boko Haram in April.

    A new video issued by Boko Haram claims to show some of the nearly 300 schoolgirls missing in Nigeria, who the group’s leader says have converted to Islam.

    AFP reported that Boko Haram’s leader said the girls would not be released until Boko Haram prisoners are freed.

    In the video the girls recite Surah al Fatiha.

    Police say a total of 276 girls were abducted on April 14 from the northeastern town of Chibok, in Borno state, which has a sizeable Christian community. Some 223 are still missing.

    Abubakar Shekau has threatened to sell the girls “at the market” and some are believed to have already been taken out of the country.
