Vendors sell local newspapers with headlines stating "I saw my classmate in the Video" referring to the kidnapped school girls of a government secondary school Chibok, in a video released on Monday by Boko haram in Abuja, Nigeria, Wednesday, May 14, 2014. A Nigerian government official said "all options are open" in efforts to rescue almost 300 abducted schoolgirls from their captors as US reconnaissance aircraft started flying over this West African country in a search effort. Boko Haram, the militant group that kidnapped the girls last month from a school in Borno state, had released a video yesterday purporting to show some of the girls. A civic leader said representatives of the missing girls' families were set to view the video as a group later today to see if some of the girls can be identified. (AP Photo/Sunday Alamba)
