Film star Angelina Jolie has said the kidnapping of more than 200 schoolgirls in north-east Nigeria speaks of a "bigger problem" about the treatment of girls by radical Islamists.
Jolie, who is also a UN Special Envoy on refugee issues, told French news channel i-Tele: "If the world does nothing and they get away with this then we set this horrible precedent, so I think it's extremely important that something is done immediately to try to find these girls."
"God forbid we don't then we still have to bring these men to justice," she added.
The Nigerian military has flown more than 300 sorties in the hunt for the abducted schoolgirls, a Major has told ITV News' Rageh Omaar.
A newly released video from Boko Haram reportedly shows the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls.
The man who started a viral hashtag campaign in support of the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls says it has forced the government to act.
