The leader of Nigeria’s Boko Haram said in a video Monday that he would free more than 200 kidnapped schoolgirls in exchange for the release of militant prisoners.

Dozens of the abducted girls were shown wearing full veils and praying in the video, which was obtained by French news agency AFP and which U.S. officials believe is genuine.

The recording is the first apparent confirmation that any of the missing students remain alive.

Boko Haram’s leader Abubakar Shekau appeared in the video, saying the girls had been converted to Islam.
