Four months after being abducted by Boko Haram militants, over 100 schoolgirls from the town of Dapchi in northern Nigeria are struggling to resume their lives. Attendance at their school has dropped dramatically, despite government assurances.
The United Nations says at least 97 people have died of cholera in northeastern Nigeria over the past two weeks. As well as the outbreak, the region is grappling with attacks by local militant group Boko Haram.
Five months ago, Boko Haram kidnapped more than 100 schoolgirls. Four weeks later, the terrorists let the girls go. But for many of them, a self-determined and normal life seems out of reach. A report by Adrian Kriesch.
Boko Haram has released 101 of the 110 schoolgirls that the Islamist militant group abducted in Nigeria last month. The return of the girls came with a sinister warning for the girls' parents.
More than 1,000 people held captive by the militant group Boko Haram have been freed, according to Nigeria's military. Most were women and children, although some men who were forced to be fighters were also rescued.
