According to AFP, the United States is flying "manned" intelligence missions over Nigeria with the government's permission to try to track down more than 200 abducted schoolgirls, a senior US official has said.
Washington had also shared "commercial satellite imagery" with the Nigerian authorities in the hunt for the missing teenagers, the senior administration official said, asking to remain anonymous.
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.
