Amnesty International have accused the Nigerian government of failing to act on advance warnings that Boko Haram were planning a raid on the boarding school where 234 girls were abducted.
Amnesty International claim Nigerian security forces had four hours of advance warning but did nothing to stop it. Amnesty International's Netsanet Belay said:
“The fact that Nigerian security forces knew about Boko Haram’s impending raid, but failed to take the immediate action needed to stop it, will only amplify the national and international outcry at this horrific crime.”
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.
