The American ambassador to the UK - Matthew Barzun - has defended the twitter campaign to raise awareness of the kidnapping of over 200 Nigerian school girls on Good Morning Britain.
He reiterated that the rescue operation was lead by the Nigerian Government, but said the international community had "stood up" for women's right to an education.
"It's interesting - they didn't see bring back their girls, or bring back the girls, they said bring back our girls," he said.
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.
