Boko Haram send ‘proof of life video on Chibok girls’

Boko Haram has released a new video showing some of the 200 schoolgirls that it kidnapped from the town of Chibok in northeast Nigeria exactly two years ago.

The video – the existence of which was first revealed by the Telegraph last weekend – shows 15 of the 219 girls, dressed in black hijabs and talking to an off-screen cameraman.

Despite a celebrity-backed social media campaign to highlight their plight, the Nigerian government has been unable to secure their release.
