Boko Haram Releases New Video of Chibok Girls

Video has surfaced showing at least 15 of the Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram militants two years ago pleading for their freedom.

The young women were recorded to provide 'proof of life' in a clip sent to negotiators by their captors.

The video obtained by CNN is believed to have been made in December and is being used as collateral in discussions between the Federal government and the extremist cell.

CNN  played it to the mothers of several of the missing girls.In heartbreaking scenes, the women can be seen collapsing in tears as they recognise all of the pupils lined up in the recording.Rifkatu Ayuba is one of the mothers whose 17-year-old was shown in the clip.

Upon seeing her, she wails 'My Saratu!' as she reaches desperately to grab a hold of the computer. Ms Ayuba said: 'I felt like removing her from the screen. If I could, I would have removed her from the screen.'
