The Islamist militant group Boko Haram claimed responsibility on Monday for the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls during a raid in the village of Chibok in northeast Nigeria last month, the French news agency AFP reported, citing a video it had obtained.

“I abducted your girls,” Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau said in the video, according to AFP. He said on Monday he would “sell [them]on the market”.
