'Nigerian authorities have said 82 Chibok schoolgirls have been released into military custody in the north of the country.

The girls have received medical attention and are to be flown to Abuja to meet the president.'

The girls, formerly held by Boko Haram, were released in a prisoner swap. "A handful of other girls have either escaped or been rescued, but 113 still remained unaccounted for following Saturday's release."
