A mother of one of 200 abducted Nigerian schoolgirls has identified her daughter on a video by Islamist rebels that shows the girls in captivity, a school leader told Reuters by telephone on Tuesday.

One mother watched the video on television on Monday evening and spotted her daughter among dozens of girls sitting on the ground and wearing veils, said Dumoma Mpur, chairman of the parent teachers association at Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, northeastern Nigeria.
