A new video appears to show the kidnapped girls from Nigeria

A video released on Monday by the Islamist extremist group Boko Haram seems to shows some of the kidnapped girls for the first time. About a 100 of them appear on screen, wearing a full body veil, but with their faces visible. Also on the video, Boko Haram's leader says the girls will remain captive until the government releases some of the group's jailed fighters.
