Confusion over number of girls missing

20 Apr, 2014

There is confusion about the number of kidnapped girls. According to the Associated Press, parents say that 234 girls are missing.  However, other sources report that 129 were initially kidnapped, but some escaped, leaving the total missing at 85.  Parents, say these sources, are afraid to bring their daughters out for a head count.  The discrepancy in figures can’t be readily resolved.
