Nigerian president Goodluck Jonathan has announced that he  believes the  200 schoolgirls abducted last month are still in the country.

The girls aged between 16-18 were taken by a group called Boko Haram.

Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau said the girls will be held until all members of their group are freed from prison.

Their location of the girls is still unknown and British and American advisers are helping the Nigerians hunt for the girls.

Many countries around the world are disappointed at the slow response from the Nigerian government.

The girls were abducted from a village of Chibok, near the Cameroon border, on 14 April when Boko Haram militants stormed a secondary school and seized the girls who were taking exams at the time.

Fifty have since escaped but more than 200 remain.
