New video shows kidnapped Nigerian girls

Tampa, Florida -- As a Tampa doctor announces a Bay Area rally, a new video showing kidnapped Nigerian school girls has been released.

CNN is reporting: "A Boko Haram video emerged Monday purportedly showing some of the kidnapped Nigerian girls in headdresses and the terror group's leader declaring they have converted to Islam.

"The 27-minute footage shows girls wearing Hijab headdresses and reciting the Quran as they make Islamic declarations of faith.

"It was shot in a nondescript area of a [rural area]."

We've now learned when Tampa Bay will join a worldwide movement -- the Bay Area will host a #BringBackOurGirls rally on Friday at 3 p.m. at the gates of the University of Tampa.

Rallies around the world have called for action to find and rescue nearly 300 Nigerian girls. They were kidnapped a month ago and they're still missing.

For the first time, we're hearing from one of the few girls who escaped. A CNN correspondent spoke with the girl, whose identity was hidden for her safety.

The girl said fighters from the militant group Boko Haram showed up at her school with a row of buses and gathered the girls at gunpoint.

A villager said it was like the terrorists were going shopping. The girl got away, but she's still terrified.
