Boko Haram threat: US forces 'on the ground' in hunt for 276 kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls
US First Lady Michelle Obama and human rights campaigner Malala Yousafzai are among high-profile figures to join worldwide calls for the return of the schoolgirls on Twitter.
A US task force set up to help find the 276 schoolgirls abducted by the Islamist militant group Boko Haram has arrived in Nigeria to assist with the hunt.

Military, law-enforcement and development experts, including some skilled in hostage negotiations, also plan to tackle the rising threat from Boko Haram. France, Britain and China have also offered help.

The US Secretary of State John Kerry said: “Our inter-agency team is hitting the ground in Nigeria now and they are going to be working in concert with President Goodluck Jonathan’s government to do everything we can to return these girls to their families and their communities.

  1. The Toxic Ideology of the Wahhabists

    Wahhabism has forcefully shown its presence through AL-Qaeda and the Taliban; it’s not surprising that, with serious foreign funding, Al-Shabaab and Bora Haram are making their barbaric presence felt in Africa.

    The Muslim Intellectuals in The West must break their deafening silence, forthwith. They have to denounce the toxic ideology of the Wahhabists, besides being active participants in the Social Order of this Splendid Planet.

    Peace, La Paix, Shalom and Salam.
