Report: New video shows missing Nigeria schoolgirls

The Islamic militant group Boko Haram has released a video claiming to show the missing Nigerian schoolgirls.

The video, which was obtained by the AFP news agency, alleges the teenagers had converted to Islam and warns that they would not be released until all militant prisoners in Nigeria were freed.

It's around 17 minutes long and shows about 130 girls wearing full veils and praying in an undisclosed location.

A total of 276 girls were abducted by Boko Haram on April 14. Some 223 are still missing. Nigerians grew outraged at a perceived lack of response from the government, which led to a global movement call "Bring Back Our Girls."

Meanwhile, international efforts have been ramping up. The United States, Britain, France, China, Spain and Israel are supplying experts to help the Nigerian government.

Donald Sterling speaks out to Anderson Cooper

Nearly two weeks after the NBA fined and banned him for life for his remarks in a recorded conversation, Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling says he's sorry but feels he was "baited" to make racist comments.

Audio of the conversation was leaked, which has led to a lifetime ban from the NBA, a $2.5 million fine and the NBA commissioner is asking other owners to force Sterling to sell the team.

Anderson Cooper managed to land a sit-down interview with him.

STERLING: "I would do anything for them, i made a mistake I hope its in their heart to forgive me for that mistake.  I don't know why the girl had me say those things."

COOPER: "You're saying you were set up?"

STERLING: "Well yes, I was baited -- I mean that's not the way I talk. I don't talk about people for one thing, ever. I talk about ideas and other things, I don't talk about people."

California Highway Patrol rescue Chihuahua

The California Highway Patrol is being praised for rescuing a Chihuahua off Interstate 680 Friday during rush hour.

An officer spotted the small dog on the highway's concrete center divider around 6 p.m. The officer exited his cruiser, used a protein bar to coax the Chihuahua toward him and was able to pick up the dog.

The dog was uninjured and was taken to an animal shelter. CHP Contra Costa tweeted a picture and several people have since offered to adopt the little guy.
