The young Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai has said that Boko Haram is "misusing the name of Islam" by saying that girls should not have an education.

She is marking her 17th birthday by appealing for the release of 200 Nigerian girls, kidnapped by the militant group 3 months ago.

Malala has been speaking to the BBC's John Simpson in Nigeria.
