CNN’s Arwa Damon travels to remote islands of Lake Chad as search for missing Nigerian schoolgirls continues

CNN’s Arwa Damon (@arwacnn) travels to Niger and Lake Chad, an “area of interest” according to U.S. sources involved in the search for the missing schoolgirls from Chibok, Nigeria.  The vast lake – 520 square miles of water – contains many islands, and could be an ideal hiding place for Boko Haram.

A villager on one of these islands tells Damon how he fled Nigeria after Boko Haram attacked his village, setting fire to homes, killing people and stealing produce.
