The jihadist group Boko Haram said Tuesday that it had abducted more than 300 students from an all-boys boarding school in Katsina, in northwest Nigeria, as punishment for their "un-Islamic practices." Local officials said 333 of the school's 800 students were missing. The mass kidnapping came six years after Boko Haram abducted 276 schoolgirls, traumatizing the country and sparking the global #BringBackOurGirls campaign. Nigerian surveillance aircraft and American drones were dispatched to search for the kidnapped boys. One 17-year-old, Usama Male, managed to escape. "They said they would kill whoever tried to flee, but I positioned myself near the back and waited for a chance to run," he said. "Hundreds of my fellow pupils are still in captivity somewhere in the forest." [The Wall Street Journal]
