Nigerian army still searching for kidnapped girls
The Nigerian army says it has found no evidence of the more than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped last year by Boko Haram militants. The army statement comes after troops seized many towns formerly under the control of the militants.
The chief of Nigeria's Army Staff told reporters the army has been asking about the girls in all the recaptured towns. But he said those questioned, in his words, "have not made any comments suggesting the Chibok girls were there and taken away."
Boko Haram kidnapped the girls from a secondary school in the town of Chibok nearly a year ago. The incident led to strong international criticism of the militants and intense criticism of the Nigerian government for failing to protect or find the girls.
