Boko Haram leader mocks #bringbackourgirls campaign

Nigerian militant group Boko Haram have released a video mocking the #bringbackourgirls campaign which was founded after they abducted 200 schoolgirls.

Coming three months after the youngsters were taken, the footage shows the group's leader Abubaker Shekau standing in front of rows of tanks and fighters.

In a mocking tone he seemingly directed at Nigerian president Goodluck Jonathan he says: "Bring back our girls, bring back our army."

He then shouts: "Kill, kill, kill Christians," before claiming he is ruled by the Koran and not the Nigerian constitution.

Footage of the youngsters, who have been missing for more than three months, is then shown although it is unclear when it was taken.
