CNN – Nigeria’s chief of defense staff says he knows the whereabouts of schoolgirls kidnapped in northern Nigeria last month.

Despite this, the military will not use force to rescue them, according to the News Agency of Nigeria, a state-run news service.

Boko Haram kidnapped about 300 girls from their school in the northern Borno state more than five weeks ago, and the Islamic extremists still hold 276 as the U.S., Britain and other nations ramp-up efforts to help the Nigerian government find and rescue them, according to CBS News.
