Hundreds of young girls abducted by an Islamist terror group in Africa may be released as part of a deal with the Nigerian government.

"Boko Haram" kidnapped nearly 300 girls from their boarding school in April.

Many escaped, but more than 200 are still missing.

Nigerian leaders and the Red Cross met four times with two senior members of Boko Haram last month.

Nigeria may release 30 Boko Haram commanders in exchange for the girls.
