Nigeria neighbours 'must play role' - William Hague

Nigeria's neighbours, such as Chad and Cameroon, have an "very important role" to play in the battle against the Islamist group Boko Haram in Africa, UK Foreign Secretary William Hague has said.

His comments came as talks on the threat from Boko Haram - hosted by the French president - opened in Paris.

Militants abducted more than 200 schoolgirls in Nigeria in April and released a video earlier this week showing more than 100 of the girls and offering an exchange for prisoners.
