BREAKING NEWS: More Nigerian girls abducted by suspected Boko Haram militants

I’ll sell abducted schoolgirls, Shekau threatens in video

Suspected Boko Haram militants have kidnapped eight more girls in northeastern Nigeria, adding to the more than 230 already abducted.

The latest kidnapping happened on Sunday night in the village of Warabe, in Borno state. The girls taken were between the ages of 12 and 15.

On Monday, Boko Haram's leader threatened to

"sell" the girls seized from their school on 14 April.

The Islamist insurgency by Boko Haram has left thousands dead since 2009.

There is mounting domestic and international anger at the Nigerian government's failure to find them.

The village of Warabe is close to the Sambisa forest, where the other schoolgirls are suspected to have been taken.

Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau released a video on Monday confirming that his group had taken them.
