The Wider Image: Parents of Nigeria's abducted girls cherish keepsakes
Kachalla Bukar, father of Aisha Kachalla, a missing student of Government Girls Science and Technical College, holds a dress of her daughter in Dapchi, in the northeastern state of Yobe, Nigeria. Bukar's eyes filled with tears when he looked at a blue plastic basket containing his 14-year-old daughter's belongings.
Aisha Kachalla is one of 110 girls abducted on Feb. 19 by suspected Boko Haram militants from her school in Dapchi, a dusty, remote town in the northeast Nigerian state of Yobe.
The basket contains noodles, underwear, clothes and other items her parents packed to make her life at boarding school more comfortable - before it was interrupted by men shouting and brandishing weapons. REUTERS/Afolabi Sotunde
