Finding Nigeria's Lost Girls

-
(NBC News)  President Obama is sending U.S. advisers and drones to help find hundreds of Nigerian girls kidnapped from their school by the terrorist group Boko Haram.

The plan is winning praise from Nigerian-American leaders.

"What they need from the United States, at this point, is to require a lot of technical capabilities to zero in on the area where these girls are being held," says Samuel Okey-Mbonu of the Nigerian-American Leadership Council.

Terrorist leader Abubakar Shekau has threatened to sell each girl for $12.

The kidnapping have sparked global outrage and calls for action.
