Another freed schoolgirl, Khadija Grema, told The Associated Press that one of her classmates wasn't released because she refused to renounce her Christian faith and convert to Islam. Boko Haram, which means "Western education is forbidden" in the Hausa language, has routinely targeted schools since launching its brutal insurgency in northeast Nigeria in In April , the group kidnapped schoolgirls from their boarding school in the town of Chibok in Borno State, about miles northeast of Dapchi.
Some of the girls managed to escape on their own, while others were later rescued or freed after negotiations. But the fate of many of the girls still remains unknown. Boko Haram, which seeks to establish an Islamic state, has spread its terror across Nigeria's mountainous borders over the years into Niger , Chad and Cameroon , all of which surround the Lake Chad Basin. The group's uprising was fueled largely through its systematic campaign of abducting children and forcing thousands of girls and boys into their ranks, according to a report issued in April by the United Nations Children's Fund UNICEF.

Captive Chimpanzees Spontaneously Use Tools to Excavate Underground Food
On the surface, humanity carries on much as before, only things are grayer, people are sadder and government officials stay on the lookout for anyone who dares to resist our new insect overlords. We the people, as always, have adapted to their new reality.
Meanwhile, a small resistance group prepares to strike against the Legislators. How, you ask? The conceit of making the aliens largely absent villains does give the film a quietly allegorical quality; really, they could be any kind of autocrat or invader.
