(London) -- Secretary of State John Kerry says the U.S. is doing everything possible to help Nigeria find more than 200 missing schoolgirls. Speaking in London, Kerry called the kidnapping of the girls barbaric and horrendous. The U.S. has sent a team of military and law enforcement experts to Nigeria to assist in the search. The girls were kidnapped almost a month ago by the militant Islamist group Boko Haram. The group has threatened to sell the girls as slaves or child brides unless the Nigerian government releases its jailed members.
