The United States intelligence is working with Nigerian authorities to rescue schoolgirls who were kidnapped by the Boko Haram militants. This militant far right group are lslamic extremists. They're threatening to sell the young women into sex slavery (forced marriages).
276 female students were kidnapped from the Government Secondary School in the town of Chibok in Borno State, Nigeria. The kidnappings were claimed by Boko Haram, an Islamic Jihadist and Takfiri terrorist organisation based in northeast Nigeria.
The Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Nigeria. They broke into the school, shooting the guards.
A large number of students were taken away in trucks, possibly into the Sambisa Forest. Houses in Chibok were also burnt down in the incident.
The school had been closed for four weeks prior to the attack due to the deteriorating security situation, but students from multiple schools had been called in to take final exams in physics.
Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau claimed responsibility for the kidnappings emerged. On the video, he claimed "God instructed me to sell them ... I will carry out his instructions."
He said the girls should not have been in the school and instead have gotten married. It was unclear if the video was made before or after reports emerged that some of the victims had been sold.
What a heartless bastard. I hope the Nigerian government get a hold of those responsible. I hope that justice is swift and quick.

Instead of talking about Benghazi, how about Republicans talk about sex slavery and human trafficking.
Nigeria's president Goodluck Jonathan popularity is waning after this event. Many families are frustrated with the lack of response from law enforcement.
Interpol, the FBI, the CIA and British intelligence are working diligently to save the women from death.
We here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences and prayers to those affected by this horrible tragedy.
