Nigerian schoolgirls 'forced to join Boko Haram' - BBC

Some carrying out killings

(ANSA) - Rome, June 29 - Some schoolgirls kidnapped in Nigeria last year have been forced to join Islamist militant group Boko Haram, the BBC said Monday.
    Witnesses say some are now being used to terrorise other captives, and are even carrying out killings themselves.
    The testimony cannot be verified but Amnesty International says other girls kidnapped by Boko Haram have been forced to fight.
    Boko Haram has killed some 5,500 civilians in Nigeria since 2013.
    Some 219 schoolgirls from Chibok are still missing, more than a year after they were kidnapped from their school in northern Nigeria. Many of those seized are Christians.
