In a videotape received Monday, Nigeria’s Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau claimed responsibility for the abducting of more than 300 school girls and has threatened to sell the 276 that remain. "They are slaves and I will sell them because I have the market to sell them,” the Islamic extremist leader said, according to AP. Unverified reports made last week alleged that some of the girls were forced to marry their abductors.
