The BBC has learned that a deal to release some of theschoolgirls was close to being secured when it was called off by the Nigerian government. WillRoss reports.

There was a plan in place for there to be a swap of some 100 Boko Haram detainees, and if theywere released, then 50 of the girls were going to be set free by the Boko Haram Islamistmilitants. So we understand that an intermediary did go and meet some senior people in BokoHaram and even saw the girls in the place where they were being held. This was earlier thismonth, and it actually was about to happen this swap, and then we are told that thegovernment cancelled the deal, and so the whole thing was called off.

Europe has become inscrutable, remote and incomprehensible even for governments. This cannot continue.

Tomorrow, at the European Council, I will reaffirm that the priority is growth,jobs and investment.
