Abuja (AFP) - Nigeria's highest ranking military officer, Chief of Defence Staff Alex Badeh, on Monday said they had located more than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram militants.

"The good news for the girls is that we know where they are but we cannot tell you," Air Chief Marshal Badeh told reporters outside Defence Headquarters in the capital Abuja after speaking to protesters.
