Hundreds of schoolgirls abducted by Islamic insurgents in Nigeria are the "world's girls", the US Under-Secretary for Political Affairs said after a summit in Paris.
Wendy Sherman told reporters: "Nigeria has had a lot in its hands [...] Boko Haram has been creating havoc for some time".
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.
