(CNN) – In Nigeria, the government's chief of defense staff says he knows the whereabouts of the more than 200 schoolgirls abducted by the militant group Boko Haram last month, according to a state news report on Monday.

But Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh said because of the location where the girls are being held, the Nigerian military will not use force to rescue them.

Further details about where the girls are have not been made available.
