The Wall Street Journal tells us the story of how two young girls managed to escape from Boko Haram in this chilling documentary.

We find out how two girls were kidnapped at a young age and were forced to join the terrorist group Boko Haram in Nigeria. They were forced into marriages and were given no freedom to see their family or to leave the group. Eventually, the girls were told that they were going to carry out a suicide bombing mission. They had an explosive device strapped to them and were told to go to a nearby town and carry out the attack.

When they got to the town, they saw two soldiers. Noticing the fear in the girls faces, the soldiers asked them if they were carrying a bomb. The girls told them that they were and pleaded with the soldiers to help them. Despite putting the risk to their own lives, the soldiers helped to remove the bomb and took the girls into shelter, freeing them from the grips of Boko Haram. The video uses an incredible blend of animation and live-action to paint a vivid picture of what life is like under Boko Haram.
