New video of "Chibok girls" puts pressure on Nigerian government

There is relief that they are still alive, but also anger that authorities are no closer to winning their release.

A new video showing more than a dozen of the 219 schoolgirls held by the Islamist militant group Boko Haram has emerged in Nigeria.

Emotional parents have identified some of their daughters, kidnapped from a school in the town of Chibok two years ago.

There is new pressure on the government to explain what it is doing to try to find the girls, who were sitting exams when captured.

Protesters today took to the streets on the second anniversary of the kidnapping, accusing authorities of not doing enough.

A global online social media campaign called #BringBackOurGirls has also been calling for more action on the case.
