A week after Islamist extremists stormed into a remote boarding school in northeast Nigeria, more than 200  girls and young women are still missing.

The girls were abducted after midnight from their Chibok school, which lies on the edge of the Sambisa forest. According to police commissioner Tanko Lawan, gunmen killed a soldier and then took off with at least 200 students. About 44 of the students escaped by jumping from the back of trucks used to abduct them or by sneaking out of the kidnapper’s camp deep inside the forest.

The whereabouts of these women remain unknown.
