Kidnapped Nigerian Girls Seen in Video

A new video has emerged showing some of the missing schoolgirls kidnapped by the armed group Boko Haram in Nigeria two years ago, providing hope to parents that their daughters are still alive. About 15 girls featured in the video obtained by the Nigerian government, saying they were from the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok and pleading with the government to cooperate with Boko Haram on their release. Mothers have recognized some of the missing girls in the video. Local officials said more identification was needed, Aljazeera reported. Boko Haram fighters abducted 276 schoolgirls from Chibok in April 2014, with 57 pupils managing to escape but 219 still missing. The kidnapping of the girls has become a political issue in Nigeria, with the government and military criticized for their handling of the incident and failure to track down the girls. The government blames the previous administration for lack of progress, while activists are asking for western countries to help with the investigation.
