Rescued Chibok girl meets Nigerian president

In tonight's edition: EgyptAir plane crash; the first rescued Chibok girl meets Buhari; and girls code their way to a new future in Nairobi.


The search for clues as to what happened to bring down an EgyptAir flight above the Mediterranean continues. 66 people were on board. Greece denies that wreckage found close to where the jet crashed comes from the plane.

Also, the Nigerian army reportedly ramps up operations around the Sambisa forest after the return of the first of 219 girls kidnapped by Boko Haram extremists over two years ago. She meets with president Buhari and offers valuable information about the whereabouts of the remaining captives.

And in a bid to open up possibilities that they most likely would never have considered in weighing up their futures, club code is teaching computer programming to girls in Nairobi.
