A Year After Kidnapping, Hundreds of Schoolgirls Remain Missing

Despite an international effort to defeat Boko Haram, insurgency rages on.

Of the known 276 schoolgirls taken in April of last year, only 50 have escaped on their own, leaving 219 still missing, although unconfirmed reports have claimed 50 of the girls were seen in the Gwoza Hills three weeks ago. The failure of the Nigerian government and the international community to locate the Chibok schoolgirls reflects the many ways in which the militant group has defied a year-long campaign to defeat them.

Watch the video above to get a fuller picture of how Boko Haram sustained its bloody insurgency over the last year.
