In Nigeria, an agonising wait for parents of 300 abducted girls

Families in northwest Nigeria’s Zamfara state are desperately waiting for news of more than 300 schoolgirls who were taken by gunmen from a government school on Friday, the latest in a series of mass school abductions to hit the country.
Some parents say their daughters are not going back to school, that the government has failed them - some want to continue their education but say they would not board at school.
There have been at least six mass kidnappings in schools in northern Nigeria - two this February. The attacks are happening in a region with the lowest levels of school enrolment and retention - sparking fears that the region may fall farther behind the rest of the country.
