A year ago today, nearly 300 girls were abducted from a school in northeast Nigeria by Boko Haram. Dozens escaped, mostly in the days right after they were taken, but the rest - 219 young women - are still missing, despite worldwide attention and demands to "Bring Back Our Girls."

Nigeria's President-elect Muhammadu Bhuari said today that his government would "do everything in its power to bring them home," but that he "cannot promise that we can find them."

Here & Now's Robin Young gets the latest from Michelle Faul, Nigeria bureau chief for the Associated Press.
