The extremist group kidnapped over 300 schoolgirls in northern Nigeria in April, setting off a worldwide campaign for their release that has since lost steam as their captivity continues. Boko Haram is still holding an estimated 219 girls. Many fear the girls are being sexually abused and might have been sold into slavery.
