Escaped captives told BBC Panorama that some of the 219 girls flog those who can’t recite Qur’an and slit throats of captured males

Some of the Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram militants last year have been brainwashed to begin fighting for the Islamist group, with many carrying out public beatings and even killings, other captives have told the BBC.

Women who claim they lived in the same camps as some of the 219 girls who were taken from their school in the town of Chibok last April told the Panorama progamme that many are now administering punishments on behalf of Boko Haram.

Guus Hiddink Resigns as Netherlands Manager: Latest Details, Reaction

Guus Hiddink’s second stint as Netherlands manager has come to an end after the Oranje’s official website confirmed on Monday the 68-year-old would resign as coach of the national team on July 1, with assistant Danny Blind taking over for the time being, per Sky Sports.

The website quotes Hiddink as voicing his regret: “I am sorry it went this way. I thought it was an honour to again coach the Dutch national team and I wish my successor, the staff and the players every success on the way to the European Championships in France.”    

The Netherlands currently sit third in their Euro 2016 qualifying group, behind the Czech Republic and Iceland, having failed to improve upon the results seen under Louis van Gaal at last year’s tournament in Brazil.

Sky Sports went into further detail on Hiddink’s record since being renamed Netherlands boss, which makes for far less impressive reading than his first tenure between 1995 and 1998:

Sky Sports reported that Blind, father to Manchester United midfielder Daley, was on course to replace Hiddink in the senior managerial position following Euro 2016.

It’s unclear as of yet whether the former assistant will be fast-tracked into the role on a permanent basis or if the Royal Dutch Football Association will seek to appoint a different name as Hiddink’s successor.

This is how love declarations are done in the modern day, after all.

The photo shows the model leaning against a railing on a boat on the Thames with Big Ben in the background.

ROMANTIC!

Joe’s only caption was a Union Jack flag emoji, but we know he probably really wanted to put a thousand thumbs up and heart emojis instead!

The 25-year-old also posted a photo of himself opening champagne on a boat, which was most likely taken by Gigi:
