US TO Assist Nigeria Government To Rescue The Missing Girls

The Nigeria government said it welcomed an offer by the US to send a team of experts, including soldiers and hostage negotiators, to help investigate the first abductions.
Officials from the US State Department said there was evidence that some of the girls had been moved into neighbouring countries such as Cameroon and Chad.
UN envoy and former British prime minister Gordon Brown has also called on the US and UK to mount a surveillance operation and to help rescue the girls if they find them.
There is growing concern, within and outside Nigeria, at the failure to locate the girls.
Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, whose military sought to overcome similar tactics by the Lord's Resistance Army, condemned the Boko Haram attacks.
"These people are ideologically bankrupt" he said.
"It would be a mistake for the government of Nigeria to negotiate with these people. The most important thing is to defeat them, then negotiations can come after that," he added.
