US to assist Nigeria
May 7 , 2014
One of the kidnapped school girls in Nigeria spoke about her escape from Boko Haram and there were reports of more kidnappings in the region shortly after that.
Reuters reported that the United States is sending a team to Nigeria in order to assist with the situation and the State Department confirmed that the embassy is ready to "form a coordination cell."
A spokeswoman for the State Department also noted that the Nigerian president welcomed this offer and the United States is determined to do everything it can to help free these girls.
