Boko Haram, a terrorist group operating in Nigeria has abducted 30 more schoolchildren, in addition to the 200 girls abducted half a year ago. The abduction of the 200 girls sparked a Bring Back Our Girls campaign, that though brought attention to the issue, has so far failed to reach its goal of returning the girls to their homes. The group, whose name translates to “Western Education is forbidden”, has kidnapped 500 girls since 2009. Many believe Nigerian authorities to have been grossly negligent in the investigation of these crimes.
