    0

    KANO, Nigeria: World powers, including the United States and China, have joined in the search for the more than 200 schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram Islamists who have also killed hundreds in the country’s northeast this week. Amid global outrage over the kidnapping of the teenagers, the United States, Britain and France are sending specialist teams to Nigeria. China promised to supply “any useful information acquired by its satellites and intelligence services” to Nigeria. The police on Wednesday offered $300,000 for information leading to the rescue of the girls. Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration has sought to appear more engaged with the plight of the hostages in recent days, especially after Boko Haram chief Abubakar Shekau released a video threatening to sell the girls as “slaves.”
