Gone girls: Abducted from school by terrorists, their kidnap made headlines around the world. Today 112 are still prisoner, being raped, starved and beaten. Now a new book asks the damning question: why haven’t they been rescued?

Two hundred and seventy-six teenage girls were abducted from the Chibok Government Secondary School in Nigeria on April 14, 2014. Their captors are Boko Haram terrorists.

More than seven years later, 103 of the girls were released after negotiations. Sixty-one others managed to escape. The rest are still unaccounted for, reports Helen Brown of the Daily Mail.

A new book, Bring Back Our Girls, by Wall Street Journal reporters Joe Parkinson and Drew Hinshaw describes the girls’ ordeal, interviews survivors, and gives information about Boko Haram and its leaders.
