    Nigeria: Chibok girls shown alive in Boko Haram video

    April 14, Abuja: A video released by Nigerian Islamist group Boko Haram appears to show some of the schoolgirls kidnapped two years ago from the town of Chibok, media reports said.

    The video, apparently filmed in December, was sent to the Nigerian government and shows 15 girls in black robes identifying themselves as pupils abducted from the school.

    Some of those filmed have been identified by their parents. It is the first footage of the girls to be seen since May 2014.

    The kidnapping of the 276 girls triggered the global social media campaign #BringBackOurGirls, involving US first lady Michelle Obama and a host of celebrities.

    But despite their efforts, most of the girls are still missing.
