Islamist group Boko Haram threatened to sell the 234 girls it kidnapped more than a fortnight ago "on the market", AFP reports.
On April 14, Boko Haram stormed an all-girl secondary school in the village of Chibok, in Borno state, and packed the teenagers onto trucks. The trucks disappeared into a remote area along the border with Cameroon. Seen on film, Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau is quoted as saying:
"I abducted your girls, I will sell them on the market, by Allah,"
The Nigerian military has flown more than 300 sorties in the hunt for the abducted schoolgirls, a Major has told ITV News' Rageh Omaar.
A newly released video from Boko Haram reportedly shows the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls.
The man who started a viral hashtag campaign in support of the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls says it has forced the government to act.
