Timeline of Boko Haram Abductions

To accompany the Human Rights Watch report “Those Terrible Weeks in their Camp:” Boko Haram Violence against Women and Girls in Northeast Nigeria we designed and built this interactive timeline and map.

The simple scrolling timeline paints a devastating portrait of the abductions between April 2013 and September 2014. The map and timeline work well on tablet and mobile, taking advantage of CSS transparency and lightweight javascript to make the data points visible. View it online →
