Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai sits down with CNN's Isha Sesay (@IshaSesayCNN) in Abuja to discuss her meeting with Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan about the 200+ girls kidnapped by Boko Haram from their school in Chibok, Nigeria more than 90 days ago.
On what President Jonathan told her
"He made me two promises. The first one he made was that he'd definitely meet the parents of those girls and listen to what the parents say. It's very important because the parents need support, and he hasn't met the parents yet so it would be the first meeting. It's a great success for me because I want to raise the voices of those parents.
The second promise was that he would make sure these girls are soon released, and he would try his best. He said that he has many solutions, and he would find the best solution for it."
On cruelty of Boko Haram
"In Swat, it's a very difficult situation of Talibanization and terrorism where we were not allowed to go to school and we are girls. Education was totally banned and women were not allowed to go to market.
But here, the situation is - is like - it's the same. They are against education, but here they - they seem like more cruel. They have crossed the limits of cruelty and harshness. And we see that girls are now deprived of their families. They are away from their homes and it's - it's - I can't even imagine it. And those girls are suffering through it."
On turning 17
"I'm 17 and I feel that I have more and more responsibility as I grow older. I can see myself more responsible, and I think that I should continue my campaign for girls education as well as focus on my education because I believe that education will empower me and it will strengthen me to give me more and more courage."

Israel’s President Shimon Peres says his country has warned Gaza’s militants to stop firing rockets at Israel.
“We didn’t start the war today, they started it already several days ago,” Peres said Wednesday in an exclusive interview with CNN’s Becky Anderson (@beckycnn). “We warned them, we asked them to stop it…we waited one day, two days, three days and they continued, and they spread their fire on more areas in Israel.”
He also said that a ground offensive on Gaza “may happen quite soon.” Referring to rockets being fired from Gaza, Peres said “if they will stop for example tonight, there won’t be any ground entrance – but if they will continue, sooner or later this will be the response.”

CNN's senior international correspondent Nick Paton Walsh (@npwcnn) returns to the Syrian city of Aleppo, where he finds few signs of life.
He meets a British doctor working in Syria for the past two years, severely wounded six weeks ago by a bomb blast.
"First there is a plane in the sky. We duck down, and they just hit us with a bomb," he says. "I didn't feel anything. The next thing I was woken up and could not feel my leg. Things were burning around me. They took me to a hospital and when I woke up I realized I was burning. I can't sleep at night, it's unbearable."

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.
CNN’s senior international correspondent Arwa Damon (@arwacnn) reports from Nigeria’s Borno State on her exclusive interview with two Boko Haram informants who are cooperating with the Nigerian government.
Meeting in a safe house to discuss the tactics used by the terror group, these informants – who could lose their lives if caught speaking to CNN – tell her Boko Haram threatens people with joining the group or death, and warns that kidnapped girls could become human shields.
On recruiting: “They take them to the bush, and they force you to join. It’s either you join or they will kill you.”
On kidnapped girls: “They will use them to negotiate with the government about those of their members that have been detained by the government, or to use them as human shields.”
On the Sunday, May 18, 2014 edition of CNN's State of the Union with Candy Crowley, the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), discussed her thoughts on the new Select Committee set up by the U.S. House of Representatives to investigate the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya in 2012, steps being taken to reform the NSA's surveillance programs, and her committee's relationship with the CIA.
In response to Crowley's question about her response to the formation of a Select Committee to investigate Benghazi, Feinstein said she felt that the questions regarding what happened have been answered, specifically, Feinstein said: "...our report was bipartisan. And [questions] were certainly answered to the satisfaction of the Intelligence Committee".
