The Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram released a video showing 130 kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls wearing headscarves and said they have been forced to convert to Islam. The girls will only be released if Islamist prisoners are freed, AFP reports.

Kashim Shettima, governor of Borno state where the girls were kidnapped from a school in Chibok, claims to have received reports of sightings of the girls.

Reporting from the northern city of Maiduguri, BBC’s John Simpson said that Boko Haram’s comments showed signs that the group was willing to negotiate.
