Nigerian parents lashed out Tuesday at the government's failure to rescue scores of schoolgirls kidnapped two weeks ago by Boko Haram, as a local leader claimed the hostages had been sold as wives abroad.The attack was one of the most shocking in Boko Haram's five-year uprising, which has claimed thousands of lives across northern and central Nigeria.Borno officials have said that 129 girls were kidnapped when gunmen stormed the school after sundown on April 14 and forced the students – who are between 12 and 17 years old – onto a convoy of trucks.Locals, including the school's principal, have rejected those numbers, insisting that 230 students were snatched and that 187 are still being held hostage.
