Slideshow: Nigerian school defies Boko Haram

In the city of Maiduguri in north-east Nigeria, a small revolution is taking place. The Future Prowess Islamic School was set up four years ago for orphans and vulnerable children. The school offers Western and Islamic education to both boys and girls for free. A daring feat in a city under siege by hard-line Islamists of Boko Haram whose battle cry is the end of Western education in the north of Nigeria.
