No US troops to aid search for Nigeria schoolgirls: Hagel

US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel speaks at an event hosted by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and the University of Chicago Institute of Politics at the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago on May 6, 2014The United States has no plans to send troops to Nigeria to help recover hundreds of schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram, US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said in an interview broadcast on Sunday. “There’s no intention, at this point, to (put) American boots on the ground,” Hagel told ABC television’s “This Week” program. Washington last week sent a team of military advisers as part of an international effort to help Nigeria find the girls, who were abducted nearly a month ago by the extremist Islamic group. Boko Haram, whose name is loosely translated as “Western education is forbidden” kidnapped the girls from their dormitory on April 14, and has threatened to sell them.
