Nigeria: Bring Back Our Girls One Year Anniversary
One year ago the militant Islamic group Boko Haram kidnapped 276 girls, mostly Christian, from a government school in the northern Nigerian town of Chibok in Borno State. Fifty-seven escaped, but 219 are still being held. The girls' abduction drew global protests and launched the Twitter hashtag campaign #BringBackOurGirls. But since then, the plight of those girls has been largely forgotten.
