Nigeria’s military claims it has located almost 300 schoolgirls kidnapped by militants, but military chiefs and President Goodluck Jonathan have not agreed on how to free them. Military officials said use of force risks the kidnappers might kill their hostages.
The country’s defense chief, Air Marshal Alex Badeh, announced Monday night the military had located the girls, but offered no details or a way forward. “We can’t go and kill our girls in the name of trying to get them back,” he said.
