Boko Haram is in the news for all the wrong reasons. A series of audactious attacks, including the kidnapping of hundreds of school girls, has provoked international outrage.

I catch up with Jacob Zenn of the Jamestown Foundation who answers these questions and more. If you have 15 minutes and want to understand what Boko Haram is all about have a listen now or download our conversation to iTunes.
