Cautious optimism over Nigeria's kidnapped girls

• Washington Post

Bana Lawan, chairman of Chibok Local Government Area, says there will be no celebration until they see the girls, "and then we will know it is true."

Community leader Pogu Bitrus says "people rejoiced, but with caution."

He said many residents are skeptical of the army's announcement Friday that Boko Haram extremists have agreed to an immediate cease-fire.

Some reports say the truce includes an agreement to free the 219 girls missing from Chibok town.
