Boko Haram Has Reportedly Kidnapped More Nigerian Girls

Local Nigerian officials say that Boko Haram, the group responsible for the kidnapping of over 200 young girls, has kidnapped another 20 girls in Nigeria in an area that was not guarded by the military.

One witness says Boko Haram fighters pulled up in a tractor trailer and just started grabbing young women to take with them. These girls were kidnapped not very far from where the others were taken.

There have been reports in the past few weeks that the Nigerian government knew where the girls are, but most recently several villages were reportedly attacked and hundreds of Nigerians killed at the hands of Boko Haram.
