Two of the Nigerian schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram more than two years ago in Nigeria are found. In April 2014, the group kidnapped about 280 girls from a school in the northeast with the intention of making them sex slaves; 218 are still missing. The girls, Amina Ali and Serah Luka, are found separately. Amina Luka, with her new child, meets the Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari in the capital. Later that same day they announce that another girl, Serah Luka, is found wandering in the same forest where Ali was discovered.
