Just last month the Nigerian government announced that several round of talks with Boko Haram had broken down, but with this release they have shown that those kidnapped can be released through intermediaries.

Boko Haram long has offered to free the girls in exchange for detained leaders of the group. It was unclear if an exchange has taken place. The ICRC in the past had tried to negotiate a swap, which failed. Information Minister Lai Mohammed said last month that negotiations last year ended when Boko Haram demanded a ransom of $5.2 billion for the girls' freedom.

These poor girls. I read they were married off to the soldiers of the Boko Haram. I have witnessed first hand how groups like this ravage through African villages. Its a shame the world countries have not done more to save these poor young school girls.

I hope they were finally released by those horrible men. I hope they can go on to lead happy lives now that its over.

In a time when we have nothing good to talk about, the universe gives us a great gift. Thank god they are back. Hopefully they are not too traumatized.
