More rallies and prayer services were held around the world for the nearly 300 girls in Nigeria abducted by the Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram. This week (May 12) Boko Haram released a video that showed the girls wearing Islamic veils and reciting the Quran. The girls’ families say most of them are Christian. Boko Haram’s leader has threatened to sell the girls unless the group’s detained fighters are freed. The U.S. is among several countries helping the Nigerian government try to locate the girls.
