Boko Haram frees 21 girls of 200

THE extremist Islamist Boko Haram group has released 21 of more than 200 girls abducted in 2014 in the northern Nigerian town of Chibok. "The release of the girls ... is the outcome of negotiations between the administration and Boko Haram brokered by the International Red Cross and the Swiss Government,” the president's office said. "The negotiations will continue.” About 270 girls were taken from their school in Chibok in April 2014. Dozens escaped in the initial melee, but more than 200 are still missing. No details of the deal with Boko Haram were released.
