Michelle Obama 'outraged' over Nigeria kidnapped girls

U.S. first lady Michelle Obama speaks as she presents the 2014 National Medal for Museum and Library Service at the White House in WashingtonU.S. first lady Michelle Obama took the rare step of delivering her husband President Barack Obama’s weekly radio address on Saturday to express outrage over the kidnapping of some 200 girls in Nigeria last month. “Like millions of people across the globe, my husband and I are outraged and heartbroken over the kidnapping of more than 200 Nigerian girls from their school dormitory in the middle of the night,” Mrs. Obama said in the address. “This unconscionable act was committed by a terrorist group determined to keep these girls from getting an education – grown men attempting to snuff out the aspirations of young girls.” Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan said on Friday he believed the girls, abducted by militant Islamist group Boko Haram, were still in his country. The United States offered this week to send a team of experts to Nigeria to support the government’s response effort, which has been criticized for being slow.
