Nigerian girls may have been split up by now

  • A US team has reached Nigeria in order to assist the search for the kidnapped school girls but the task is getting tougher by the day. 

    Voice of America reports that it's likely that the girls "have been broken up into smaller groups." A Pentagon official also said they may have been taken out of the country by now. "The search must be in Niger, Cameroon and Chad, to see if we can find information," a UN special envoy said. "It's vital to use the information to find the girls before they are dispersed across africa, which is a very real possibility."

    President Goodluck Jonathan said he believes this incident "will be the beginning of the end for terror in Nigeria."
