DEAL WITH DEVIL

Nigeria: Boko Haram to Release Girls

Nigeria's military said Friday it has agreed to a ceasefire with Boko Haram and that more than 200 schoolgirls they're holding will be freed. The subject of a global campaign to bring them back, the girls were seized from Chibok in the northeast of Nigeria six months ago. Nigeria's chief of defense, Alex Badeh, announced the truce and deal. Boko Haram, however, hasn't said anything. The Islamic group has done more than kidnap, killing 2,000 people in Nigeria this year alone.
