One of the kidnapped girls celebrates with family members during a church service held in Abuja, Nigeria, on Oct. 16, 2016.

The families came from the remote northeastern town of Chibok, where nearly 300 girls were kidnapped on April 2014 in a mass abduction that shocked the world. Dozens of schoolgirls escaped in the first few hours but after last week's release, 197 remain captive.
