Boko Haram releases new video of kidnapped schoolgirls

2014-05-12

Just days after the Vatican condemned the kidnapping of Nigerian schoolgirls, and Pope Francis sent out a tweet asking for their release, Boko Haram released a new video with those who are believed to be some of the kidnapped girls. 

The video features the leader for the radical Islamic group, Abubakar Shekau. The terrorist leader said they will keep the students, until Nigerian officials agree to a prisoner exchange. He also claimed the girls had converted to Islam, since their kidnapping. 

The images show the girls covered in a hijab, in an unrecognizable open location.

On April 14th, the terrorist group kidnapped more than 270 girls as they slept at their boarding school in Chibok, in Borno state, which has a Christian majority. Some of the girls escaped.

Last week, Boko Haram released a video where they threatened to sell the girls into slavery. Reports state some of them may have already been sold in the border areas with Chad and Cameroon.
