Nigeria: Boko Haram releases new footage of 'missing Chibok schoolgirls'

Two years on, and the first evidence that over 200 Chibok schoolgirls are still alive has apparently been released by Boko Haram. A video released by the terrorist group claims to show the schoolgirls, and demands the release of their fighters in exchange for setting the girls free. These latest claims come as public pressure mounts on the government, who has so far failed to track down the girls despite defeating the group in military offensives.
