Malala: Bring Back Kidnapped Nigerian Students
Malala Yousafzai has called on the Nigerian government to take decisive action to find and rescue more than 200 female students who were kidnapped in Nigeria on April 15. Media reports say the teenage girls, students at a boarding school, were kidnapped by a militant group that opposes girls’ education.
“These abducted schoolgirls are my sisters, and I call on the international community and the government of Nigeria to take action and save my sisters, ” she told Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times. “It should be our duty to speak up for our brothers and sisters in Nigeria who are in a very difficult situation.”
